That is one hell of a trip! Great photos and report. I bet you never sweated so much in your life! The biodiversity of Costa Rica is pretty magical. I have only been once, and my trip was much more limited, so I am very jealous of your wide spread time there!

Congrats, and thanks. Looks like an exhausting but rewarding trip. The high country there is tough herping eh?

cheers!

Thanks, guys!

Usually in bed by midnight, so definitely not the most exhausting trip ever, Jimi. It's more fun with a little bit of work, isn't it? ;)
Yes, the fairy-tale cloud forest wasn't packed with herps... Chytrid might have gotten to the frogs, but also not a single lizard during hours and hours of hiking - weird...
