Woke up to a large blanket of fog over top of the forest. We had a couple mice chew through some people's bags but other then that we all survived. We packed up and headed for some more hiking and zip lining. After a couple zip lines and a two hour hike up more hills, we came to another tree house.

This was even more spectacular than the first the view was endless and it had two levels this time! We all grabbed some lunch and then headed to do some more lines. We rode a 500 m line, the second largest in the park. We came to another tree house which was much smaller where we heard we may see some gibbons.

When we first got up we spied two different bright green snakes in a near by tree. I think they were green tree racers. After staring out at the sunning view, Matt, one of our group spotted some gibbons in the distance. Everyone was really excited and ogling at the gibbons, and Tori was the only one who couldn't see them! It took 3 people to finally point them out to me. I just caught the tail end of them swinging through the branches before they disappeared. It's really rare to see gibbons, so we were all really happy we were able too.

We headed back to our tree house and did some zipping without the guides for the rest of the afternoon. We then grabbed dinner and everyone sat down to play and learn some poker. During our games we saw a bunch of macaques in the dark running through the trees which was super cool. We are all headed to bed very early as we are leaving at 5 am tomorrow to hear the gibbons call in the morning.
