A cloud forest up-close

Monte Verde is our first stop in Costa Rica.  This area was settled by Quakers once Costa Rica decided to eliminate its military.  This area is now almost exclusively a natural reserve.  The rain forest is very dense and almost always encased in clouds, hence “cloud forest.”  It was very dreary and misty when we went on a forest tour.  Meggan took some unbelievable macro photos.  She was very inspired by the natural patterns and design of the plants for future projects.
