As I was driving down the highway toward Boquete the other day, I was struck by this view of our neighboring volcano, Volcán Barú. This volcano is the highest point in Panama at 11,400 feet above sea level, and from the top on a clear day, you can see both oceans (the Pacific to the south and Atlantic/Caribbean Sea to the north).
Most of the time, there are some wisps of clouds that seem to get caught on Barú’s slopes, like this:
On other days, the sky is crystal clear with not a cloud in the sky, and sometimes during the rainy season, the clouds and rain completely obscure Barú, and you’d never know it was there at all. Many times when I look at its varying moods, I find myself singing this song in my head – “There is a Mountain” by Donovan. Click the link to listen. 🙂
PS: In other news, Tim and I are no longer a couple. I have moved into a new house, and am settling in nicely. Just a little FYI, since I’ve mentioned him in several previous posts. And as Forrest Gump said, “That’s all I have to say about that!”
