Danny also enjoyed viewing the cloud forests from above during our walking bridge tour. Some of the bridges at Selvatura were well over 100 feet long and 50 feet above the ground. Here are the rules of the game he invented on our hike.
Find a leaf. Or two or three or four. "Stick mama."
Put it through the gate and watch it fall. "Woah. High."
Down, down, down, down. "Go. High. Down. Wow."
Then do it again. Mom and dad had to be referee, however, when the leaf dropping game prevented Danny from finishing his trek across a bridge. This happened on . . . every bridge. Eventually Danny agreed to halftime in the backpack so we could make it through the tour.

Matt and Danny on one of the longest bridges. "Woah. High!"

I didn't make it to the bridges. They make me more nervous than the zipline. Glad he agreed to a little time in the backpack.

I'm so jealous of your adventurous family vacation. Way to go guys. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. We miss you guys-can't wait till we're all back in the same state again and we can make a last trip or two to Splashtown...

That's great... I love bridges, its funny becuase my mom is freaked out by heights, she never let us out on anything like that, I am glad you let Danny go.

Hey! I figured out why I couldn't get my comments on your blog. I had disabled all my cookies(or what-ever) I am glad that Danny had as much fun throwing leaves off the bridge in Idaho as he did in Costa Rica. I guess I will have to wait for the rest of the trip until you go back home. Love, Mom Hong
