Here are some photos from today’s hike on Sandy Cruz trail. It’s a good trail because it’s not particularly taxing (although a light rain made it very slick) and because it takes you along the north side of the island, which is basically uninhabited and therefore little seen. But mostly it’s a good trail because it’s beautiful. These pictures don’t begin to do it justice. Mainly due to the lack of real depth in the images (the jungle is as deep as the eye can see) and because it’s impossible to convey a sense of scale. Everything you see in these photos is much larger than you imagine it to be. The red blossoms in the first shot are about three times the size of my hand.
