The Hanging Bridges at Monteverde Cloud Forest was an AMAZING way to experience the Cloud Forest. You literally have a bird's eye view of the entire forest. I went later in the day so I basically had the entire trail to myself which was nice because I could move around at my own pace. I felt like I was on top of the world; it was an incredible experience!
Thanks to a guide with great eyesight we were able to spot this elusive quetzal in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve near the Arenal Volcano National Part, in Costa RIca. The photo was taken through a telescope with a digital camera.
Amazing creatures once you set aside your "fear". Yes tarantulas are venomous but none are known to have a bite that is deadly to humans.
