Power of Nature Changes Rio Viejo in Puriscal

Rio Viejo, Puriscal, Costa Rica
The other day when I went to the opening of the gorge I was greeted by a surprise from nature. This photo really doesn't give the full impact of the change that happened. Do you see the trees on the right that are horizontal? Those trees used to be on top of an enormous chunk of rock that fell off and is now leaning precariously on the mountain side. Wedged between it are a few more slices of rock making a new "cave". Near the middle left bottom is a dark opening that used to be a small cave the river water would flow in and out of. Now it's filled with sand and obscured by more rocks that fell. The power of nature is incredible!
