On January 1, 2009, George, Dolly, Erin, Russ and I visited beautiful La Paz, with its four powerful and beautiful waterfalls, high in a Costa Rican rainforest. On January 8 La Paz was the epicenter for a 6.1 earthquake that completely wiped out the stairway you see us ascending and the waterfalls turned to mud. Dolly shared a photo from Tico Times and it was overwhelming to see the stairway destroyed and to contemplate having just been there, what if? Dolly has reported that five English tourists were missing at the falls. I hope by now they have been found unharmed.
