George Howell - Montecarlos

The Details

Montecarlos is a truly spectacular farm; it covers the entire circumference of a long dormant volcano nestled in a chain of volcanic cones, two of which have recently erupted. Near its base are fumaroles spewing sulfuric vapors. On one side is the Pacific Ocean and on the other the Central Plateau bringing warm winds up the northern slopes. Tall slender wind-break trees form walls which crisscross each other into neat squares throughout the farm. Inside the crater is lush virgin forest surrounding a
meadow with pond below.
