After leaving the mosquitoes behind me I settled down to a more leisurely pace for the return hike out. Going in I was like a little boy in a toy store so excited to be someplace new that I tended to rush through it. Coming back I was able to calm down and enjoy things I did not take the time to on the way in.
I think this is the same plant I photographed going in only now it is from the other side.
Amazing how these bromeliads are able to take hold and live on a branch like this.
Hey pal, there's a hoard of mosquitoes for you about a mile back up the trail.
And then there was this guy making the best out of the unfortunate situation he was placed in.
