Day 3 – Rio Sirena
May 11, 2010 Leave a comment
I woke up this morning to a torrential downpour. The clearing in front of the rangerstation looks more like a swamp than the nice grass field that it was yesterday. It means that I won’t be getting in the water today. The water washing down out of the hills makes the river murky, and the rain makes it impossible to see into the water. So I spent the day hiking in the jungle, and taking some other photos of the park. I did manage to get some photos of sharks swimming in the shore break though. The ones I saw seemed to be in the 3-4 meter range, so much larger than anything that comes up the river. Today was capped off with a huge thunderstorm, one that shook the ground and brought trees down all through the forrest, actually blocking the trail in a few places. I hope my camera trap is doing ok out there in the jungle!
