Northern Guatemala

Those of you who know me, know that I am not keen on heights.  So, I'm sure you can understand my initial trepidation at climbing the ladder on Temple #5.  Once I was going though, I had no problem...not even on the way back down.  I did put my hands all over a guys knees as I moved along the top trying to pass him & to make my way back down.  

Views of the jungle & other temples from the top of Temple #4

This little guy put on quite a show for me that afternoon.  He was surprisingly close.  

You can see that this was a beautiful day! Though I was in the jungle & sweating, it wasn't nearly as stifling as I'd expected. The clear skies made the views from the pyramids so breathtaking.
