Canopy Walk, Anaconda Creek, Night walk
Jon and Joan's Excellent Adventure in Ecuador
Enjoying our snack after our morning hike, Julio came in and asked if we saw the monkeys. “What monkeys?” we exclaimed and zipped out onto the boardwalk, followed the sounds, and came upon Spider and Black monkeys, up close and personal, jumping from tree to tree over the boardwalk. It was non-stop entertainment. Spectacular again!
After lunch we were waiting in our cabin for our canoe trip along Anaconda Creek. Resting on the back porch, we heard a commotion in the jungle that sounded just like the monkeys from the morning. Following the sound behind our cabin, our third spectacular of the day. We spent 20 minutes watching spider monkeys all around us. Some were high up, some lower, and crossing right by like we weren’t even there. What a high! Later we had no luck spotting Anaconda’s, but it was peaceful and beautiful, especially with a light sprinkle of rain hitting the water.
On the night walk tonight I found that Angel is one amazing wildlife spotter. Especially great was the teeny frog on a giant leaf.
Tomorrow morning is up at 5 am. I’m wiped out.
