Back to the cloud forest

After the little vacation in the lowlands, we were back to working up in the high elevation of Manu. I was happy to be back, the heat and humidity was getting to me. But the unfortunate thing is that as we went into September, we were getting into the rainy season. The rain in Manu wasn't bad- it would usually only rain for a short time and there were really cool lightning storms.

After adding all the photos to this post, it looks like the theme is shades of red.
