We were in the clouds and above the clouds. After our bridge walk through the cloud forest canopy we took a tram ride even further up into the sky. First we were under the clouds, then riding through them and finally we emerged up above them. Once again we had an amazing guide, this time named Edwardo whose love of nature and information about the cloud forest added so much to our experience. He pointed out two hundred year old fern trees. He had us look way down on the mountain side where a pair of baby black vultures had hatched and were waiting to be ready to fly.
Dave had taken a picture of a mature vulture in Dominical so it was interesting to see how different the babies and adults looked. Edwardo pointed out the Pacific Ocean way off in the distance. We could look down and see the suspension bridges where we had been walking just hours before. Now we were high above them. As our tram ride ended Dave spotted this white-nosed coati. What made me sad on our tram ride was hearing our guide Edwardo say that unless something is done to stop it scientists predict that within twenty years global warming could mean the end of this cloud forest.
