The weekly photo challenge is The Road Taken
“Roads are long; make them short with a good company!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan
When we have visitors, we always take them to Charco Verde on Ometepe Island. I’ve written about this beautiful place many times, Place Where the Gods Pee. Yet, we always discover new things along the path taken through the Charco Verde Nature Reserve.
The path starts in a field of flowering vines and plantains.
It leads to a boardwalk and a dirt trail that circles the Charco Verde Nature Reserve.
Four Places on Ometepe Island to Study, Love, and Stay Close to Nature
The Howler monkeys chatter in the treetops and their loud howls can be heard reverberating throughout the reserve.
The bark of a Jinote tree is colorful and fragile.
If you look closely near the jungle floor, you may see bugs mating!
Turtles stretch their necks out of their shells and sunbathe on the rocks.
Butterflies perch on flower heads hunting nectar.
Charco Verde has a butterfly sanctuary. I still have to find the Blue Morph. He is hiding in the sanctuary somewhere.
There are benches stationed along the trail to rest and take in the beautiful scenery.
And finally, at the end of the road, there are always cold drinks waiting for us at the restaurant on the lake.
Our roads are always short with good company!
