We’re at the Boquete Tree Trek in the mountains above Boquete at about 5500 feet. When we bought this Oferta Simple (like a Groupon) I didn’t exactly know where we were going to end up. We drove to Boquete, and then farther up the road, and farther up, and up, and up until we found our destination. We got out of the car and looked back, and were amazed.
This is the view from our cabin!
I knew we kept climbing as we drove here but didn’t realize how high until I looked out over the valley, That is Volcan Baru in the distance, the highest point in Panama – 11,398 feet.
I think that might be a zip line. The power is generated by hydroelectric on site so there shouldn’t be power lines up here.
The sunset colors the clouds behind and the low clouds roll through in front of Volcan Baru.
A zoomed in look at the top of Volcan Baru with the communication towers on top, and the sunset colors behind.
Looking down into the valleys through the clouds looks almost unreal.
The sunset fades, the wind continues to blow, and more and more clouds roll through.
It’s hard to believe we were just in David where these summer season days are around 90 degrees. It’s a different world up here. Right now it’s very chilly (it was in the low 50’s before sunset), the wind is howling around the cabin, and a light rain/mist is falling.
Tomorrow I will definitely be out there with my camera! We also have a tour of a coffee farm planned in the afternoon which should be interesting.
I’ll end for now with this short video of the clouds rolling through.
