I wanted to share a couple of pictures of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. It was such a beautiful place... and they only allow a small number of people into the park at a time, so you really do feel like it's just you and the jungle!
There was a long hanging bridge in the park amongst trails... so you could really see into the canopies! There were a couple of Tanagers building a nest, even. And yep... the white mist were the clouds... that's how high up we were!
Rory is crazy about his frisbees. He's not ball driven, surprisingly... but he's definitely a frisbee nut!
He's really growing up and turning into a *real* Border Collie. He stalks about constantly and stares down everything. My dad had even made a comment about how his eyes are creepy. I love the intensity in this breed.

Little dogs can fetch, too!
Rory was very intrigued by the foam at the water's edge... He decided to stalk it and give it the eye just in case...
Tucker definitely enjoys being in the water... as long as I'm close by:
We had such a GREAT time! Costa Rica was such a beautiful and friendly country... I have nothing but good things to say about our experiences there. From a night tour through the cloud forest reserve in Monteverde to riding the ziplines at 300+ feet over the tree tops, we had a blast!
Here are just a few pictures from our trip...
This is a shot of Lake Arenal from our drive towards Monteverde:
Here's Lake Arenal again, but viewed from the base of the Arenal Volcano:
These are lava flows from the early 1900's... and Arenal Volcano in the background. Unfortunately it was cloudy that day and we could not see the top:
Poas Volcano was amazing... there are geysers in the main crater which cause all of that smoke! The aqua colored "lake" is mostly sulfuric acid and rain water... it smelled like rotten eggs whenever the wind blew the cloud of smoke towards us! Want to go for a swim?
