As we Drove up into the mountains on this rainy day, we got a good view of Alajuela and some of the surrounding hills… the pup at the bottom pulled a treat from the supposedly dog proof raised trash bins.. 

Beautiful view

 

Alajuela

 

Probably strawberries under those tarps being grown

 

raised cages to protect the trash…but this guy will not be denied…
