A Short Hop in Panama

On Thursday, Island Girl took another day off from her epic journey. She flew only 82 km (51 miles) for the day. However, this was one of the only times that she headed to the SW while following the lay of the land in Panama.

She roosted on the side of a ridge top at 2,138' a couple of hundred feet below the summit. The site was gain located about midway between the Caribbean and the Pacific. Certainly if the skies were clear, she could see both bodies of water at the same time (as I have done in Panama from the right viewpoint).

She wasn't far from La Yeguada volcano, which is a reminder that she is continuing to travel through the extensive seismic regions of Central America.
