February 18, 2008

We went today with Elder and Sister Cox, the office missionary couple, to Soberania National Park and hiked the famed Pipeline Road once again. For the first time we were able to climb a newly constructed tower and get a "bird's eye view" of the surroundings. Another couple there had a nice telescope and tripod, with which they helped me to get some shots I otherwise couldn't have gotten. In addition to those pictured, we saw a number of small but beautiful green birds, blue birds, and yellow breasted birds. We saw our first sloth. And on the way out, we saw a tree full of monkeys. We also found a steam of ants beautifying their homes with fallen pink blossoms, a short video of which will be accessible at the bottom of this page.
