LAST GOOD-BYE LOOK-OUT - ITATIAIA NATIONAL PARK
BORDERS OF THE STATES OF SO PAULO (SP), RIO DE JANEIRO (RJ) AND MINAS GERAIS (MG)


Sometimes I do that: grab my car and go wherever it can take me, only for the day (Craziness, some would say)!

Yesterday (a holiday in the State of So Paulo), I went to the State of Rio de Janeiro, some 300km away from CAMPINAS, right in the border of the State of So Paulo, in the town of ITATIAIA, where the ITATIAIA NATIONAL PARK (The first Brazilian National Park) is located!

I really enjoyed getting in there, seeing some waterfalls and some mountaineous landscape!

From this look-out point, located inside the park, one can see the PARABA RIVER VALLEY, here between the ITATIAIA MOUNTAIN RANGE (where I was and part of the MANTIQUEIRA MOUNTAIN RANGE) and the BOCAINA MOUNTAIN RANGE (in the background, part of the SEA MOUNTAIN RANGE)!

In the ITATIAIA REGION some of the highest peaks in Brazil are located (some reaching more than 2,800 m of height!).
