In this ecotreasures ® magazine issue, we are rendering tribute to nature’s creative ways to surprise by means of optical illusions or by its grandeur per se. So, this special issue highlights seven remarkable and impressive discoveries we have seen and that demonstrate the above, describing one per each ecotreasures magazine’s category. Even though we have been astonished by Mother Earth multiple times, we have selected special findings to share for purposes of this recognition. Keep reading and you will learn about a curious nature’s gift perceived during a sightseeing trip on a forest road.

We were driving on a hill along El Yunque National Forest, specifically on Route 186 in Municipality of Río Grande, Puerto Rico. Right from the start, the forest road was intriguing as abundant greenery welcomed us. The diversity of trees and plants was impressive, especially their contrast in terms of shapes and sizes. However, a particular ecotreasure stood out from the crowd. We could not stop staring at it, so we paused our drive. Climbing plants had covered some trees and harmoniously created the optical illusion of an elegant and enormous green horse. It was a fantastic view that we will always cherish. See for yourself while checking out this article’s photo gallery.

Value every second while exploring natural sites. Value every ecotreasure seen by acknowledging its existence and admiring it. At some point Mother Earth may dazzle you.
