The end of a vacation

Well, it had to come to an end eventually...The photos today come to you from the El Yunque Rain Forest in Puerto Rico.
Our first offial stop was at the Yokahu Tower. (we had a 3 hour tour, so we did not get to stop at the visitors center)

We got too see a lot of plant life including this lovely hibiscus (we were there at a less than optimal time - too early.)

As are these

We were able to take a short hike:

This is the other side of the road as the waters continue on their way...
