Utah Photo Album

Ok, so not exactly Central America but I've finally gotten around to uploading some photos from a road trip to Utah back in April of 2009.  I'd edited the photos and created an album but for some reason never got around to uploading them to share.  Pretty much all over Utah including Zion Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, Escalante, etc.

Click here to view my Utah Photo Album.  I've switched to as my photo sharing site since my picasa account is pretty much full (and I like the interface better). Make sure you're viewing them full size and I also suggest using the full-screen view mode (button at top right).

Leaving for Panama

Well my 17 days in Costa Rica are coming to a close.  Tonight, I board a bus to make the 15-18 hour journey down the Interamericana Highway to Panama City. 

I'm only online for a bit now but will say that Costa Rica has been a great time traveling around with Ramona.  We started in Dominical for a few days on the Pacific Coast, down further south to Drake Bay and Corcovado on the Osa Peninsula before jumping back across to the north Atlantic side to Tortuguero near Nicaragua and on down to Puerto Viejo just near the border of Panama.  We were quite fortunate and had little rain apart from the evening shower even though it is technically the rainiest month of the rainy season (thanks El Nino). 

I would characterize the trip as a lot of wildlife.  Lots and lots of wildlife - whales, turtles (both moms laying and babies hatching), 3 types of monkeys, lots of lizards, snakes, frogs, otters, crocodiles, caymans, sloths, spiders and countless kinds of birds - i'm sure I'm leaving some out but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.  Needless to say, I have lots of photos which over time I'll try and get a few up once I arrive in Panama.  Till then...
