Amuri tepui part I

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

didn't post my Amuri pics of our 2009 expedition here yet (or just a few here and there). Some of the Heliamphora we found were about to publish, so the field trip report had to wait. And if you don't do it immediately...

 

then just later on smile.pngLike my Ptari Thread, this will be a series. Here Part I - heading for Amuri.

 

The evening before: San Francisco (de Yuruani ;-) The crew is getting a bit impatient ;-)

The next morning - flight over Gran Sabana:

Chimanta massif (of which Amuri is part of).

Getting off - quickly! This taxi meter is running fast...

And our camp. Perfect basis for some great trip the next three days.

Thanks :-) part II is about to follow.

 

Brocchinia were so plenty, it was difficult to walk around without stepping on them ;-) Same was true for Heliamphora at some spots. Really crazy.

 

Regards

 

Martin
