More roads less travelled

The old Maine saying “you can’t get there from here!” applied to us today on our trip from San Jose to Manuel Antonio. Our gps ladies know that we like traveling on roads less travelled and “Mathilda” was taking us on small roads that became dirt roads that became something akin to logging trails!

The scenery was spectacular and we saw some cowboys riding their horses as well as colorful shrubs and a few homes, but no other vehicles .

We made the wise decision to turn around just before a very steep and mud-churned hill and then set off on another paved road that looked very promising. We ended up driving 49 km on dirt, but it was manageable dirt and we periodically encountered others on the road. An interesting diversion along the way was this snake on the road (about 5feet). From internet research, I think it’s a Fireball Python.

A welcome cerveza stop along the (dirt) road!
