So, we wake up in Seabra, have breakfast at the little hotel, and we are on the road by 8:00. Down the same tree lines road with pot holes and oversize trucks to maneuver. As we drive along we get our first views of Chapada Diamantina National Park which our destination Lencious sit on the edge of. A beautiful park approximately 15,000 square miles in size filled with natural beauty just waiting to explore.. OK... time to learn... Chapada means "a region of steep cliffs" in Brazilian Portuguese and soon we begin to see these cliffs with plateaus above as we drive down into the valleys. Unfortunately on our journey we did not encounter any Diamantina which refers to diamonds found here in the mid 19th century.
