Chichamocha Canyon...

Yes, he is on cloud 9 that she wanted to sit on his lap!

We headed out in Alvaro's van this morning at around 9am

We stopped at a 'toll road' of sorts and the boys bought some fried ants to take home for their cousins to eat!

We were told there was a zoo, but in fact there were only goats!  Good thing my kids LOVE goats!!!

I do not know what I will do with my other half leaving soon!  Dreading it!

Love this cheese-ball, so glad he is staying with me!

Will miss this one!

There was this weird big huge monument thing that was on a steep curve, these pictures show a tad bit of the depth, it was freakishly high!

The flowers were gorgeous!

This is the park on the top of the mountain, the monument is the weird thing at the top of the hill.


Cool tree

We tried...but to no avail to get everyone looking and smiling at the same time.

The view was amazing!

Back to the weird monument with the weird kids!

Mary Ellen and I enjoying some Colombian coffee.

These trees were so awesome.

There were several of these truck wash places, which we found kind of strange, in the middle of pretty much nowhere, on the curvy mountain roads.

Passing on double yellow lines!  And guess what, we were right behind doing the same thing!  Aye!
It was about an hour and a half drive up the mountain, we did a lot of walking around then drove back down the mountain and we were all very sleepy on the way back home!

There was a cable car that you could ride across the canyon, which would be amazing I am sure, but we decided to just take in the view from the top of the mountain!  What an absolutely beautiful creation, we have an amazing God!  So glad we had the opportunity to see more of this beautiful country today.
