Parque Sierra Nevada -- Mucuy
Photos by Don and Lois Porter

The weekend of March 5-7, we rented a little Renault and drove up to the high paramo region around Apartaderos, some 40 miles or so northeast of Merida. We stayed in a nice hotel in Apartaderos, and visited surrounding attractions: Pico el Aguila, Lago Mucubaji (where we hiked in to Laguna Negra), Parque Mifafi, and the CIDA astronomical observatory. On the way back to Merida on Sunday we stopped for a hike in the Mucuy section of the Parque Sierra Nevada.
