Bogarin Trail, La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Our challenge for the last few weeks was to find a Blue Jeans Frog, which is a type of Strawberry Poison Dart Frog.  I had read of people seeing them at the Bogarin Trail, so when Phil and Nicole asked for suggestions of places we should go, that was at the top of my list.

With each of our 'Animal Challenges', the first person that spots one and points it out to another member of the family gets a treat.  Tucker won the treat this time.  He spotted the first Blue Jeans Frog.  By the time we finished the trail, we had seen 30-40 of them.  

We also saw lots of other neat animals, including a three-toed sloth, a basilisk, a spectacled owl, red lored amazons (parrots), black mandibled toucans, chachalacas, king fishers and many more.  It was a successful hike!

Carson took most of these pictures.
