Rain Rain Rain

After two days of practically non-stop dreary, dank, wet weather, I’m reminded of how beautiful the rain forest is in Costa Rica. At least it didn’t thunder. And look at the results! Lush magnificence!

Just one reason I miss Costa Rica, the massive natural canopies! Pura Vida!

A Walk in the Rainforest

My family took a trip/tour of Costa Rica with 28 other people. By the end of the trip we were all good friends. I even got a new “bestie!” Here is a sampling of our first trek around the Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna. This was also our first taste of what happens in a rainforest: yes, it rains! I wrapped my beloved Canon 5D Mark II in a Target bag (made a hole in the bottom for the lens and somehow made a toga for the camera). I called this my “redneck camera cover.” It worked somewhat, but a later trip showed it certainly wasn’t airtight. (no worries, all is good!) I was awed by the beauty a volcano thrusts forth, emerging from the Earth and embracing the land.

Pura Vida!
