to the skies

October 17, 2009

Yesterday and today we’ve been exploring the mountains and cloud forests of MonteVerde.  Yesterday, we ziplined through the jungle.  It was amazing.  The views from the ziplines were so beautiful, flying across the ziplines was so fun and we saw two monkeys swinging from the trees that we were zipping through.

Zip-linning 

We have some videos of us zip lining, but unfortunately we can’t upload them on our blog.  (Well, we could…but we would have to pay $60, and we’d rather use that money to, I don’t know, go snorkeling or something).  I’m going to put them on facebook, so you can see them there. 

Today, we went hiking through the Cloud Forest.  They call it the cloud forest because the mountains are so high that they reach through the clouds.  It’s a rain forest, so it’s unbelievably green, with exotic plants and birds. (We didn’t actually see many of the birds, but we sure heard them!)
