A few photos for you.
These are from a hike to Catarata Waterfall. The waterfall is about ten minutes from our place. Honestly, the hike is the Costa Rican equivalent of hiking to Cascade Falls in Ouray. (If you haven’t seen Cascade Falls, get a plane ticket and get on it!) It’s about a “3” on a scale of one to ten.
It took only 45 minutes to get to the actual waterfall. We stopped often, the reason being that Rae cannot pass up a chance to watch army ants carrying leaves across the jungle floor. We passed about 20 different colonies loping along with bits of foliage in their mouths.
I have to admit it’s strangely fascinating to watch. I shot video of them, but it loses something in translation. The video just looks like tiny leaf chunks walking around the ground. It would make for better video if the ants shot flames out of the eyeballs. I’m working on that.
Anyway, for your viewing pleasure:
