The word is “breath-taking.”
Riding to Turrialba via Pacayas/Santa Cruz on Route 230 is simply one of the most scenic rides in the country (though I am beginning to think they are all scenic!). I highly recommend it — hopefully early in the dry season to really appreciate the views. Santa Cruz is like hobbit land.
One day, we road up on the incredibly winding road that goes up to the top of the Volcano. Odd landscape up there. I think that one cannot drive up there anymore? The volcano is now active and can often be seen releasing ash.
Here’s an old photo from 2012.
This is the first Honda I had after 24 years of not riding. Her name was “Zorra,” which I will not translate! Haha! Though it also means “fox,” which I like. This was the first long trip I had taken in a long time, to Turrialba and back. Magic!
Yes. What a breath-takng trip this is (when there is no fog!). Amazing. I hope you can take it one day so that you can feel the beauty, know the love.
Here are some Facebook albums with more photographs.
