Travel Pic of the Week

Mount Roraima, Venezuela, Guyana, Brazil

After watching Out of the Wild I can’t help, but want to go to Mount Roraima

After watching Out of the Wild I realized that if I want to explore this part of the world, I must do it before babies!!! I guess South America will be one of our next big trips.

Mount Roraima borders Venezuela, Guyana, and Brazil. The area is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is located in Venezuela’s Canaima National Park and Angel Falls, at 3287 feet, is the tallest waterfall in the world!

Here is a NY Times article about Mr. Im Thurn’s climb to the top of Roraima from the 1800s.
