Wacky Nature in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a gorgeous country with endless experiences for nature enthusiasts. But some of them really stood out for making me laugh or do a double take.

Sometimes giant, twisting trees create beautiful patterns. I think the cross section kind of resembles fan coral.
