Hiking up Volcan Maderas

By Brian Rogers | 2 Comments » January 25th, 2008

We ascend, then descend Isla de Omitepe’s oldest volcano, Maderas, and step into a “Lord of the Rings” like world. Slogging through mud, rain forests, rocky scrambles are all on the slate for today. Make your hike up Maderas in today’s photo gallery.

    I’ve ridden an aerial tram through the canopy of the rainforest in Costa Rica, which looks very similar to this…except…there was NO volcanic crater….AND I didn’t encounter such muddy feet, obviously! Gosh, what did you do with those shoes on your return? Just wear them into the lake to clean them (and YOU) off ?? Don’t go catching a cold now….your photos and journals would be sorely missed…You’re doing such a SUPER job !!!! THANKS FOR THE RIDE….!
