La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Marietta College Biology and Environmental Science Department Field Trip 2005/2007

La Fortuna was a midpoint in both 2005 and 2007.  Higher in elevation than the lowland tropical rainforests, yet lower than the cloud forests of Monteverde, it helped us adjust to the change in temperature and humidity between those places.  Dominated by the active Arenal Volcano, the area is interesting in its own right.
