From Minas, we took a drive towards Villa Serrana. The back way, of course.
More rolling hills and a very nice slow drive. Along the way is a waterfall – Salto del Penitente. Not nearly as exciting as we had hoped. Bode has a theory on waterfalls that increasingly proves accurate.
The highlight was finding pools of tadpoles at various stages of development and inspecting them all. Biology class: check.
Flocks of parrots. And, a meal-sized lizard too – if anyone can identify it, you get extra credit for biology class.
We finally made it to Villa Serrana and it’s description proved correct: a tranquil little town with a small lake. It was nice, but didn’t really hold our attention for very long. So, we headed back towards Minas and found a campsite just north of town at Cerro Arequita.
