Garua


Note: Our tour occurred during the garua or mist season. Every morning, a dense mist hung over high elevations and sometimes extended to sea level. Here, our group hikes toward garua-shrouded highlands.
Note also, the clear distinction between the salt-water saturated littoral zone, with its salt-tolerant vegetation, and the arid zone.
