Rio Purisil

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

The next day I wanted to go to the Parque Purisil which was about 8 km up the valley.  I had seen a little shop in Orosi that had bicycle rentals so I made that my mode of transport that day.

I cycled up to Parque Purisil but could get no ones attention, so I just continued up the road a ways and then hid the bike back behind some bushes and headed back into the forest.  There I saw lots of Costus curvibracteatus at all stages of maturity and got some very nice photos.
