I took this photo back in April, which is the end of the dry season. That is why some of the trees are brown. Like trees in the north in the winter, during Rica's northwest Pacific coast from November until April, trees will drop their leaves to conserve water. That also makes monkeys, sloths and iguanas easier to spot.
The hot, sunny dry season is also good for tourism. That is the season when Canadians and Americans especially like to come down to escape the cold weather up north. I like the weather in Costa Rica during the traditional summer months as well. We have only brief, occasional rain, and the forests turn very green.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing some unusual sunrise photos from Washington D.C. I love D.C. I was born at Bethesda Naval Hospital, went to college and graduate school there, and worked for several Members of Congress there from 1971 - 1982. I hope you enjoy the photos.
