These roots seem to be marching, or perhaps slithering, down the slope in Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Hollywood could perhaps turn them into creatures in a movie.
This photo, in combination with my posts from previous days, should give an idea of the diversity of plant life in the park. There are dry forest plains in the area with the volcancitas and fumaroles, and there is a dense cloud forest, such as the area shown in this picture, at a slightly higher elevation just a short hike from the dry forest plains. On July 5th, I posted a photo of a tree with a flying butress trunk from the same area of the forest.
The plants in the park include the most plentiful growth in the wild of the orchid that is the national flower of Costa Rica, the guaria morada (cattleya skinneri). At higher elevations, the park has barren volcanic craters.
I will show more photos from the park in the future, including some of the waterfalls, but not right away. Tomorrow, I will resume showing more of the wildlife in Palo Verde National Park, starting with a crocodile.
