Heavens to Murgatroyd – where did November go? And December, for that matter. With 2017 staring us in the face, it’s a good time to look back on some of our best moments this year. So many of those moments have been about spending time with friends and our fur kids in the cloud forest paradise known as the western Panama highlands. Every time we get out, it’s like re-discovering our wonderful home all over again.
On our recent trip to Argentina, we took a two-hour flight north to the hamlet of Puerto Iguazú – gateway to one of the most awe-inspiring wonders in South America, if not the world. Iguazú Falls is what happens when the upper Iguazú River plunges almost 300 feet into the lower Iguazú River gorge. Its horizontal span – almost two miles – ranks it the fourth widest waterfall system in the world, behind Khone Phapheng in Laos, Pará in Venezuela, and Kongou in Gabon (note to selves: visit those too!).
