The last 3 days were spent at 4 different locations. Culebra Trail, Pipeline Trail, Lerida Finca, and the trail to Volcan Baru. Bill Fox jointed us for 2 of the hikes. One was a damp one up Culebra trail. It was the only day we have seen a sort of rain here and that was more of a phenomenon called Bajareque. It is a heavy mist that rolls over the mountains from the Caribbean.
