Another set of photos from the Las Cruces Overlook

While the biological station is at about 1150 m above sea level, the highest point, sitting at about 1440 m, in the reserve is at a newly acquired pasture directly west of the station. I’ve posted shots from here in the past.

An overlook at Las Cruces

A small group of us hiked to some newly acquired abandon pasture at the Las Cruces Biological Station that sits at the highest elevation of the reserve–1400 m. The northeastern view looks at the Talamanca mountain range, where Las Alturas de Coton is located, and, more broadly, La Amistad International Biosphere Reserve, which is a protected area covering southern Costa Rica and norther Panama.
