Just popping in to say: Look! Pretty!

When I checked our route on Google Earth before we left yesterday, I noticed that Costa Rica is very crinkly. And it is. See, look:

I would further like to observe that you never really notice how many cows there are in a place until you're with someone who says "Moo" every time you pass one.

Remember when I went to the Expo last month and said the trip was pretty "in a Romancing The Stone" sort of way? This is what I meant:

The road goes through a national park, in which there are several "Please to be respecting the nature" sorts of signs. This one, interestingly enough, exhorts one not to shoot the lions.

And then you come to a narrow bridge.

And then the oil palm plantations.

And then the Really Bad Bridge.

And then the beach.

Great shots. Costa Rica looks like a tropical east TN/western NC.

Well, yes, crinkly b/c CR is in an area of uplift, being on the continental side of a subduction zone and is relatively young from a geological standpoint...

Okay, I'll shut up now with my Geology Geekery.

Lots of nice shots here, but the last one takes the Grand Prize.

And Christina, careful with that plate tectonics talk - you're getting me all hot!
