One Type of American Dream: New ExperiencesHello: if you like my blog, would you sign up to follow it? Thanks!
We drove to Monte Verde to make a dream come true: to experience a cloud forest, a completely different type of forest than a rain forest.
Up in the mountains, we felt tiny stings on our bare arms. It was the tiny, cold droplets of the clouds that drifted over the mountaintops. This moisture collects on leaves and runs off to the roots, creating a unique eco-climate.
Look closely in the center of this fig tree, you'll see the silhouette of my head.
We took a canopy tour. You're now looking down 50 to 100 feet at the tops of trees growing below.
My brother, in the blue jacket, said to the guide of the canopy tour, "We're all plant nerds, so please go slow."
A plant that looks very weird to my eye.
More strange plants.
We really are plant nerds!
