Have a merry monkey Christmas!




I had a little fun again this year with our Christmas card photo. Can you tell which monkey doesn't belong? Well, it's the one that is not wearing a helmet and looks the most like a monkey. (I hope!)




This photo was taken last February at Hacienda Baru in Costa Rica. We were attempting a 120 foot tree climb. We made it around 50 feet before calling it quits. I'm no monkey that's for sure. But it was a lot of jungle fun.








And for those of you that missed last year's card. I photoshopped a squirrel in another Costa Rica photo. It was supposed to be a funny take on the popular crasher squirrel photo. This photo was taken in front of the Arenal Volcano. Unfortunately the cone shaped Volcano was enshrouded in clouds during this visit. But it was still active and spewing lava rocks down the side. You can actually hear and see them without binoculars. Hmmmm. I wonder if that means we were too close?




Merry Christmas blogging friends!

Your tree climb makes you wonder what you could have done had there been a creepy, tree-crawling, killer at your feet. I bet more than 50 feet.

Very nice!
50 feet is 5 stories off the ground! That is still pretty darn high! Happy Holidays...

Tree climbing looks like fun. Good thing ropes are used. Doubt legs would be useful at such heights as knees would go wobbly! LOL!

Merry Christmas!
