Monteverde - suspension bridge canopy tour
Dancing across the suspension bridge, almost 2 miles of walkways high above the Monteverde canopyThe realization of how far up you are can be daunting, when you stop to think about how tall the trees of the rainforest are and that you are way above them. The bridges sway as you cross, it is mostly silent except for our footsteps then you can suddenly be assaulted by a cacophony of parrots overhead or below, making their presence felt. The paths and bridges are well maintained as the forest is constantly working on reclaiming its territory. If you stop long enough you can imagine being alone in the world because this walk is easily self guided, but someone is always not far in front of or behind you.
How do you think I got this picture of myself dancing across the bridge?
