The ride to Turrialba Volcano

September 15th is Independence day in Costa Rica (as it is for the five countries of Central America) and is a holiday for us. I took the opportunity to go for a (relatively) long ride on my bike to see Volcano Turrialba. The first photo shows the closest I could get, as the road was closed past that point due to the drifting smoke emanating from the volcano. The second photo is looking the opposite direction and sort of makes it look like I'm standing on top of the world.
