We're on our last roadtrip away from the beach.
The destination is the Monteverde Cloud Forest in the mountains Cordillera de Tilarán.
A very green, very wet and very windy forest ...
... and with an amazingly high biodiversity.
This is a genuinely humid rainforest, albeit a cool one. Air temps are down to less than 2/3 of the ones we have adjusted to along the coast, so we are shivering.
Epiphytes in high numbers and mosses in thick layers are growing on the forest trees. This place does look like something right out of Lothlórien, the home of Elves in "Lord of the Rings".
Tomorrow, we'll get an early start and explore this mystical wildwood.
