The Amazon Jungle: Tambopata National Reserve & Lake Sandoval

October 1, 2012 2 comments

This is my second post in a series on my recent trip to Peru. In my first post, I talked about hiking Huayna Picchu at Machu Picchu. Stay tuned for thoughts on Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Lima, and more.

When my girlfriend and I were planning our trip to Peru, we had a big decision to make: Spend our final three days at Lake Titicaca or spend them in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. We chose the latter.

Why? We thought it might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the reviews of the Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion lodge were stellar. I’m hoping to go into more detail about the wonderful lodge, its employees and our other excursions in the Amazon in another post. But for now, I wanted to detail our experiences on a day-hike inside Tambopata National Reserve to Lake Sandoval.

An Autumn Day on Green Lake

I walked down to Green Lake on a beautiful autumn day in Seattle. Here’s what I came up with!

Trees can't block the sun from peaking through.

Looking across Green Lake at some fall foliage.

This duck brought its beak back up from the water as I snapped the photo.

Some more fall foliage at Green Lake.

Another duck makes its way across the water.

A cloud reflected on Green Lake.

Beautiful animals seen here on Green Lake in Seattle. Love them as long as the word 'Oregon' isn't in front.

Some mushrooms growing on an old tree near a bench on Green Lake.

A duck wades through the water.

The sun hits the water on Green Lake.

The sun begins to set over Green Lake in Seattle.

I was lucky enough to capture this great blue heron on Green Lake, right as I was about to call it a day.
