For the 1st post I wanted to talk about the thing I think about first when thinking about Puerto Rico, for a lot of folks that might be beaches but for me, it's hands down the mountains.

This picture was snapped by one of my best friends and it's the view of the valley from her parent's place. I live all the way on the other side, where the mountains are. Right on the edge of "civilization" where the urban landscape starts to change to small country roads and forest. I personally find the mix between urban and jungle very interesting. On my way to my daughter's school the road climbs pretty high up into the mountains, passing many streams and open fields, while being next to malls and suburbs one minute, and dense rainforest the next.

The color I've chosen to represent my mountains is Pretty & Polished Green Eyes and Stormy Skies from their Spring FX line. It's a gorgeous green holographic duochrome that flashes between a bright green to a dusky greyish purple. I have lots of pictures to show you since it changes depending on the angle it's viewed at.
