Palmarum Posted August 24, 2008 Author Report Share Posted August 24, 2008 2008 IPS Biennial - Costa Rica Day 03: Monday, May 5th Quebrada González Ranger Station, Braulio Carrillo National Park -> Hilton Doubletree Cariari Hotel Group 2, Bus #4 - 3:20PM: We crowded back on board our bus and got comfortable, stowed gear, got beer, etc. and sat back as the bus pulled away from the ranger station and entered the highway. CRT Guide Jonny welcomed us back aboard and asked if we enjoyed our experience in the park. There was a resounding "Yes" that echoed back and forth through the bus. - 3:23PM: In the time it took to flood the bus with beverages we reached the bridge that crossed the Sucio River. This time, we were heading south so of course this photo shows the opposite side of the bridge that was shown earlier. - 3:41PM: We were making great time heading back towards the hotel. When we reached the top of the mountains a cloud bank had moved in and fogged most of our scenic views. - 3:44PM: Our CRT Guide Jonny had mentioned there was a photo opportunity coming up along the highway and asked if we should stop, and again there was a loud "Yes" from everywhere on the bus. We pulled over in an open area next to the highway, with the sheer face of the mountain on one side and a nice long drop on the other. When I got off the bus everyone was noticing the carpet-like covering of the mountain face by Gunnera plants. This is another one of those photos that would make a nice jigsaw puzzle for hard core people. Ryan 1 South Florida Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
