US – Costa Rica Galleries Uploaded Part I

In a shocking display of speed and concentration, I have uploaded the pictures from our recent trip to the US and Costa Rica in less than a month after we got back.  I believe it was actually 28 days, even!

We went and hung out in Denver.  I didn’t take too many pictures but we did go to the aquarium with Hunter and Lois.  Curved glass tends to yield criznappy shots, though, so a lot didn’t make the cut.

We went to Costa Rica for 10 days during this time.  We flew into Alajuela / San Jose and drove up to the Arenal Volcano area and did some hiking and adventuring over there.  I liked the canyoning, where we went rappelling and hiking through watery canyons.  We got rained on a lot.  It was a nice change.

Seriously, I wasnt kidding about the rain part.

From Arenal, we drove down to Playa Del Coco in Guanacaste, the region in the Pacific northwest of Costa Rica.  We stopped along the way at Las Pumas Cat Zoos near Canas.  I was somewhat frustrated at the fence, but it’s there for a reason.

A short drive later, we were off the road near Bagaces heading to the Llanos de Cortes waterfall(s).  A short walk and after sneaking through the gaurds, we found the waterfall.  I didn’t stay in the water long.  Something kept biting me.
