Rio Negro river

At the end of the horseback ride, we found ourselves on the banks of the Rio Negro river.  The forest was lush.  Hacienda Guachipelin is located on the slopes of Rincon de la Vieja volcano, and there are many rivers that run down the slopes of the volcano.  The elevation gain up the slopes of the volcano causes a transition from the Pacific coastal dry forest to the cloud forest at higher elevations.

What a day! I wonder if you slept well that night. My head would have been so crammed with images and sensations it would have been hard to turn my brain off despite the exhaustion.

With those black rocks (volcanic?), I can understand why it's called Rio Negro. Beautiful place!

WOuld love to have a splash there. It somehow reminds me of a river where I used to dip and swim when I was a child.
