The Scenic Route

From Minas, we took a drive towards Villa Serrana. The back way, of course.

More rolling hills and a very nice slow drive. Along the way is a waterfall – Salto del Penitente. Not nearly as exciting as we had hoped. Bode has a theory on waterfalls that increasingly proves accurate.

The highlight was finding pools of tadpoles at various stages of development and inspecting them all. Biology class: check.

Flocks of parrots. And, a meal-sized lizard too – if anyone can identify it, you get extra credit for biology class.

We finally made it to Villa Serrana and it’s description proved correct: a tranquil little town with a small lake. It was nice, but didn’t really hold our attention for very long. So, we headed back towards Minas and found a campsite just north of town at Cerro Arequita.

    It appears to be a Tegu Lizard — but I’m sure you already knew that and were just being rhetorical. Glad to see you back on the road.

    this is Bode’s theory
    “If you’ve seen one waterfall, you’ve seen them all. I’m going back to finish my book.”

    No, no, no. You can never see too many waterfalls.
