Monteverde Reserve Trip

We took a field trip yesterday to the Monteverde reserve with the whole class, and it was absolutely beautiful! The guides were also very knowledgeable of what we saw. We went on about an hour and a half hike up one of the trails that led to an awesome waterfall.

We also saw lots of animals, I only got pictures of a few. We saw a Side-Striped Palm Viper (I know the picture isn't clear, I was scared to get too close!)

We also saw hummingbirds.

And also a forest slug, I can't remember the name. One of the kids thought it was a snake.

We had a great time, and I will tell you that field trips in the United States are different in some ways. In Costa Rica, we picked up parents on the way to the field trip on the bus! Much more informal, but it worked out just fine so I don't see any issues with it :]

This picture is my favorite, it's totally natural the guide said. :p

Finally, I want to add this picture because I love it. This is the view of the Gulf of Nicoya from the Cloud Forest School on a clear day. How beautiful is that?

How beautiful! Glad the snake was not vicious - James is not there to throw a rock.
