The monastery-topped mountain Monseratte looms over the East horizon of Bogota. A teleferique and train run to the top to deliver tourists to the 10,000 foot peak with beautiful views of the city. We scurried up to the top on a rainy afternoon, successfully dodging both crowds and raindrops.

The monastery.


Spectacular rainstorm and views of the city.


Familiar faces.


The isolated showers were stunning.


As was this quaint mountain cottage.


The cloud forest in the Andes is known for many varied species of hummingbirds, like this little guy who joined us on the mountain.
