The green mosh is another signal of the lush plant life in a climate of "eternal spring" (temperatures do´t fall below 60F/12 C over the year).
We could even spot a lonely orchid.
Our target were two lagoons, partly man made, which looked a bit like swamps but one of these water places was used by the local youth anyway. One point offered a view onto sprawling Medellin deep below. Thanks to the higher altitude the air was much cooler than in the city which made the hike even more pleasant. Fortunately there were not many mosquitoes and the nature stayed friendly and calm.
We were escorted by police on horses, two men & one woman - a part of the intense official security system which keeps Medellin friendly, calm & safe. Muchas gracias.
If you are visiting Medellin this hike is highly recommended!
