San Jose del Pacifico - Fieldwork

Unfortunately we didn't find any of TD's frogs, but we did see some interesting habitat and get to go on a great hike to Puesta del Sol, the mountain above SJdP.

Ropes of toad eggs.

Gorgeous wildflowers everywhere - neat to see Mexican sage and other ornamental plants growing wild

Gorgeous forest with moss and bromeliads

We came out on the other side of the mountain which was much drier

And because I never remember bugspray - fly and chigger bites. Awesome.

Lovely swollen leg

David and I both had bad reactions to the flies. 
Next time: remember bug spray!

  1. Wow! Those Toad Eggs were just the neatest thing! Where did you find them? In the water? Too cool...

    Sorry about the bug bites; Benedryl?
