The high altitude rainforest or cloud forest, where the Resplendent Quetzal roams, is the gateway to a world of color amid the clouds and the mist. Further up, above the tree line, is the even more colorful garden called Paramo (or Páramo in Spanish).
Think alpine meadows crossed with rain forest canopy: bromeliads, tiny flowers, ferns and club mosses growing side by side.
This link takes you to a growing gallery of my favorite images of the Paramo.
I will be happy to talk to you about this environment I am exploring in depth.
