Today we made the long trip from the Arenal Volcano to Monteverde. The views were spectacular and the road trecherous. We visited the Quaker cheese factory this afternoon and the took a walk where we could see the Pacific Ocean about 50-60 kilometers away. Monteverde is a village in a cloud forest region at about 1400 meter elevation. Some of us are going to watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Tomorrow will bring three hikes and a zip line experience. Max Lucado's book "Safe in the Shepherd's Arms" continues to be a great source of inspiration and reflection for us.
