Landscapes from the Road
Driving from Arenal to Monteverde in Costa Rica revealed beautiful landscapes, with mountains, clouds and water, of the country.
Arenal Volcano is an active andesitic stratovolcano in north-western Costa Rica around 90 km northwest of San José, in the district of La Fortuna. The Arenal volcano measures at least 1,633 meters high. It is conically shaped with a crater 140 meters in diameter. The Arenal Volcano became famous because it consistently spewed lava, gas, and ash until it went into a resting phase, in 2010. Although you can no longer see lava, the perfectly symmetrical volcano it is still impressive. Clouds obscured our view but it still seems magical.
San Jose – Costa Rica
Costa Rica’s capital, San José, is in the Central Valley. It has world-class museums, parks, hotels, theaters, and historic buildings. It’s an extensive plain, guarded by majestic volcanoes and green hills, honoring the natural richness that exists throughout the national territory. Striking clouds enhance the landscape surrounding San José.

Clouds in Yellowstone
With spectacular clouds in a blue sky, the drive through the dramatic Fall landscape in Yellowstone National Park was mesmerizing.
Yellowstone National Park is a nearly 3,500-sq.-mile wilderness recreation area atop a volcanic hot spot. Mostly in Wyoming, the park spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho too. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It’s also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope.
As we were visiting in Fall, the landscape in Yellowstone was drier but the vistas were still beautiful.
