Doing Mountains


One of the best ways to view Hermosa, Jaco, and Herradura is from a mountain. We drove up the mountain near my home and after driving up, up, up for about an hour, we decided NOT to see where the road went and turn around and go back the way we came. I've never been so far up that mountain. Scary stuff for someone from the flatlands. Car seems to be doing fine, so far.

The first photo is Playa Hermosa. Second, Jaco and Herradura.

I love pictures of vast vistas where you can almost see the curvature of the earth. Did you think you would fall off the mountain?

Enjoy

Absolutely gorgeous.

The roads are wide enough for one car and there were dump trucks moving earth. My fear was one of them coming around the bend, not expecting to find two lost machas and crash into us,,, and falling DOWN the mountain. In some places, there are huge drop offs.
There are some spectacular views from being that far above.

After exploring on the mountains with you, I feel my heart beating just looking at the pictures! It sounds like you went even higher and scarier for these pictures!

You are such an adventurer!

Yep, we went up pretty high. I'd like to go again on a clear day. I'd like to get the sunset but I'd have to sleep up there, don't think I could go down that mountain in the dark!

The mountains do catch some incredible views. Your photos are beautiful, as always.
