    Wednesday 8:30 A.M. meeting at Plaza San Francisco in front of Mort's Bakery. At 8:35, we carpool to the Lucero area to begin our hike on a dirt path along a water channel, passing the La Estrella Represa (La Estrella Water Reservoir) on a road leading to Caldera. We will NOT be hiking to Caldera this time. We hike until, we reach the area that overlooks the Talamanca mountain range a beautiful sight to see - on a clear day. The total time for this hike out and back will be 3 + hours. The trail: A delightful flat for the most part, terrain is dirt (no slippery clay mud), we walk on asphalt for a short distance then back on dirt. Remember to pack rain gear. Pack water, a snack, sun block, bug spray and bring binocs to see birds and camera to capture them in your lens.

    Wednesday Morning Hike meeting place in front of Sugar & Spice. Our hike will be in a rainforest area in Alto Chiquero. Bring $3 dollars if, you are a Panama resident or $5.00 exact change please. Intermediate to advanced hikers will enjoy this hike as it has many slopes. the trailhead begins at almost 6,000 ft. From the Boquete side, "Sendero de los Quetzales" starts after Alto Chiquero's Ranger Station with three quarters of an hour hike (mostly downhill with ups) on a dirt road. At some point instead of continuing on the dirt/rock road we take a left and join the trail that immediately immerses us into the rainforest for about, we'll do this part for about 45 min. to an hour and head back. Pack rain gear. Include in that pack water, a snack, binocs, camera and remember your hiking sticks. Wear long pants, hiking shoes or gym shoes with good outer sole treads. See you on trail. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful - Alice Walker Photo below, we won't hike this far up over 7,000 feet. Photo below a group on their way to the Alto Respingo Ranger Station, 2014. Farm worker posing with new kid - dog and ewe posing as well. Gnobe children who lived in the area alongside the trail.

  4. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful - Alice Walker Friday, meeting at 8:30 A.M. in the Plaza San Francisco parking lot located in Alto Boquete. Remember to park your car along the side road. leaving at 8:35. Just a reminder about EZ Friday it's about nature, we take our time finding the unusual. This is a great walk for birders, nature buffs, we try to identify plant life, birds and insects. It may not be for those wanting to walk the fast lane, as, we walk as a group. Our walk will be in Alto Boquete in the community of Saboney. We will carpool a short distance from PSF. The last time was walked this area was during the dry season back in March. Now, I am curious to see how it looks with all the rain that has fallen. A brief description about the trail, it's off the beaten path tucked away from all traffic and cars, it has the Rio Caldera flowing in the not so deep canyon below the path, we may see ducks swimming in a small creek alongside the path and more. This is a short walk lasting 2 plus hours and am sure you will enjoy the nature that surrounds this trail. Pack rain gear, water, camera, binocs, cap/hat, wear bug spray and sunblock as well hiking shoes or shoes with good outer sole treads. Enjoy the photos from Saboney. Join us each Wednesday morning for a three-hour plus walk or the popular EZ Friday Nature Walk for 2 plus hours, meeting time always at 8:30 A.M.

  15. We meet this Friday at 8:30 A.M. in the Plaza San Francisco parking lot at 8:35, we carpool to enjoy a nature walk in the Alto Dorado area.

It's about looking around and finding the beauty in nature such as; a tiny colorful beetle on a leaf, maybe it would be a bee resting on a flower, a hummingbird flying about, moss dangling from a tree, how about the 50 shades of green surrounding us as we walk along a path during Boquete's rainy season or raising your head as you up at the sky to see some gorgeous cloud formations.
