605 to Guacimal (And trip round lake Arenal)

I do keep myself amused with the silly riding mistakes I make. Today, I missed the right turn to go up to Monteverde, and realized it immediately, but decided to keep riding to take the next right.

All along, I thought I was on the Las Juntas road to Monteverde. I was surprised at how solitary it was. It was mostly tree covered and somewhat narrow as it wound its way up to Guacimal.

It was not till I got home and looked at the map that I realized it was not the Las Juntas road, but the small route 605. 🤣

I still want to do the Las Juntas one!! 😁

Anyhow…I connected to Guacimal and continued up to Monteverde, once again appreciating the fantastic views on the way.

After breakfast, I went to Tilaran. As I mentioned in a previous post, this road is now paved and now without the fine gravel on top. It was fun to wind my way over to the lake.

At Nuevo Arenal, I stopped for a snacks at the German bakery before heading to La Fortuna and home via route 702 to San Ramón.

I never get tired of seeing the Arenal volcano. The thrill is definitely not gone!

I hit heavy rains on the first and last part of my journey home. And noticed many roads I would like to check out. Fingers crossed!!

Los Angeles de San Ramón

Though I have not been sleeping well again these days, it was great to do this trip on a Thursday during the rainy season. There were hardly any cars on the road. Can’t wait till summer though. These heavy rains get old.

Wind therapy. It’s good for the soul.
