Blog Memories: Photos from My Trip to Madagascar, Part Two

Here's an encore blog I posted after a memorable trip to Madagascar with my family earlier this year. It was originally posted on March 27th.

There is so much to see in Madagascar - it is incredibly rich in wildlife and natural beauty.

Remote and isolated, Madagascar is home to many unique plants and animals. In fact, nearly 90-percent of its wildlife is endemic to the island. The diverse terrains include volcanic mountain chains, rock formations, sharp limestone cliffs, rainforests, and beaches. My family visited Madagascar during its hot, wet season which extends from November to April. From May to October, it is cooler and much drier with temperatures dropping as low as 50-degrees Fahrenheit. Our daily excursions included walks through Madagascar's national parks, helicopter rides over the coastline, and visits with some of the local villagers. It was a trip we will be talking about for years to come.

Here are more photos, enjoy.
