  I am linking up with Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 

August 31, 2013

Happy Labor Day weekend!

I thought I would do a post on one of my favorite places,  it has been awhile since I have done a travel and Scenic Weekend post. Working full time it has been hard to keep up two blogs so my Travel blog has been ignored. I hope to do more posts in the future.

Some of my other post on Costa Rica

These photos are from my archives and from our trip to Costa Rica. I have to say Costa Rica was my favorite country to visit. I would go back in a NewYork minute. Above is a beautiful scene showing the Arenal Volcano.

We had a great view of the Arenal Volcano from the overlook.It is an active young volcano. It is located about 55 miles from San Jose, Costa Rica.

We had a great tour at the Arenal Hanging Bridge reserve. A beautiful place to visit and I enjoyed the hanging bridges. Along our swinging bridge walk we saw a small python, heard a lot of birds and saw some critters called Coati. I would love to go back to the Hanging Bridges just to take their bird tour and wildlife walk.

I am also sharing some of the scenery from our travels along the roads in Costa Rica. I believe in the distance is Lake Arenal which is a reservoir for hydroelectric power.

Beautiful green rolling hills with the turbines at the top. There was so much to see in Costa Rica, I especially love the lush green rainforest areas.

I hope you enjoyed my scenic weekend.  I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend.
