However full respect to Nick & Amywho kept me going and who even helped carry my bag up/down ...
... a loud rustling behind me and turned to see a lizard the size of a small dinosaur climbing among the tree branches. As I watched I saw him bending back the branches, nibbling on the pink flowers.
After a REALLY long time in the hot sun, we got in the car and began to leave, but then I spotted another lizard hanging from a branch by his tail...so we stopped again. Then after more pictures, we started to go again but saw ...
