Liquid Gold

While I'm on a waterfall kick, I'm posting this beautiful scene taken at La Paz Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica.  The 'liquid gold' was actually red mud caused by an earthquake about a year ago.  Our guide said this waterfall is usually crystal clear and it may take several years to clear up again.  He also said it used to be twice as tall.  At any rate, this place was one of the most beautiful places we visited, but it was raining the whole time.  To get to this waterfall we had to walk down a ton of steps, and then of course, we had to walk back up, all in the rain while trying to take photos and keep cameras dry at the same time.  Well worth the effort, don't you think??
