2007_CRI_Canopy103Costa Rica -- San Jose de la Montana -- Canopy Adventure (zip-line tour)
In general, I had trouble taking photos on this particular part of the trip. I didn't know where to focus (it was a moving target that frequently came out of the trees from nowhere) and the lighting wasn't all that hot. But the canopy tour vendor took some wonderful ones to help make up for my...

The jungle boat tour was pretty cool. They took you out on the river and traveled down it for awhile, pointing out a variety of animals.
