|La Paz is on the way to Volcano National Park although we|
took a different route.
|And as yesterday we saw lots of cows|
|At a stop to take a break the girls decorated|
the barb wire fence with flowers!
|Maya and myself pose at the La Paz Gardens restaurant|
|Josh & Michal cuddle|
|Father and son look alikes|
|There were endless stairs up and down the valley. You had to|
be in good shape for this hike.
|The flowers were lovely everywhere|
|Everyone got a chance to hold the|
Toucan - here Maya,
|A spectacle owl spies on us|
|There were a lot of Scarlet Macaws. These beautiful|
birds live up to 75 years in captivity and mate for life!
|The butterfly conservatory was amazing - huge with|
thousands of butterflies that landed on us everywhere.
|Maya shows off one lovely one|
|And Daniel gets a kiss!|
|Orchids are just so amazing|
|Shira has a twin leopard|
|But Uzi bonding with the mountain lion|
|This is the traditional oxen cart beautifully decorated. It's|
in front of a hacienda built without nails like it would have
been a hundred years ago.
|Cookie pumps some water|
|Shira with a green pepper and our guide Raphael inside|
|We sampled cinnamon rice milk and coconut corn|
pudding - traditional treats
|Posing at our first of four waterfalls.|
|These walkways and staircases were built hanging on to the|
steep walls of the canyon where a series of waterfalls drop
down thousands of feet.
|Our handsome oldest son Josh|
|Looking up at the misty hills dense with vegetation|
|Uzi and Michal stand in the spray of another waterfall|
|Shira looking adorable, as usual|
|The waterfall looks smaller here but it is actually much taller. It's the perspective.|
