Into the Mist: Monteverde Cloudforest
La Orquidea Locos (Those Crazy Orchid People in Costa Rica)
As we got closer, rainbows began to appear and multiply in every direction. We arrived on a cool, rainy evening determined to work a canopy walk into our already packed schedule. The folks at the Cloudforest Lodge were willing to accommodate - little did we know they thought we wanted to do a Zip Line Tour of the Canopy - at night - in a driving rain! Opps! Not quite our speed though others might have enjoyed.
No problem; a night tour of the forest was quickly substituted where the night's creatures - tarantulas, coati, frogs and even some orchids (a Telipogon no less!) were spotted.
