The Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve (continued)

Here you see one of the many mangrove trees. The root system is under the sea when the tide is in; it is exposed and muddy when the tide is out. We joked that the trees were confusing us. We couldn't tell if the branches were going up or down!

The trees grew right up around the boardwalk. We enjoyed the lush green jungle and relative quiet. This park is far away from city noises (if you can believe it in this packed place).

The buildings across the water are all located in Malaysia. It is hard to believe we were so close!

Monitor lizards like to lounge in the murky water. I don't know if it is cool, but at least he's in the shade.

We surprised this fellow while he was sunning himself on the trail. Danny whipped out the video camera and we did the tourist thing! We filmed him as he ambled off the trail into the brush.
