Colpa and Cascades

On Monday, I went to Colpa, which used to be a successful farm and now appears to be a successful tourist attraction.DSCN1666It has an artificial lake, complete with artificial islands.

DSCN1691As we arrived, the storm clouds were gathering and it was not long before we were heading for the shelter….

DSCN1676After the downpour subsided, we looked at the farm’s little church….

The farm does have a party trick involving its cows, whereby each one is called by name to go to its individual feeding stall. It is quite clever but I don’t want to get carried away.  The farm, like many others in the area produces a wide range of dairy related foods and drinks.

From the farm we moved off towards our next destination, waterfalls. This involved some walking….
