The Future Looks Bright!

The Future Looks Bright!

It looks like our neighbors from up north are making history. Good for them and us! 😉

The photo above was taken last week, right before we got drenched by the copious rains brought to us by the tropical storm Arthur. It has rained continuously since last Friday… boy it almost felt like being in Portland or Seattle. 🙁

Anyway, today we have sunshine again and really good news. The photo was taken from the Municipalidad of La Antigua Guatemala looking south toward the Volcán de Agua (Water Volcano).

  • Es tu enseña pedazo de cielo
    en que prende una nube su albura,
    y ¡ay de aquel que con ciega locura,
    sus colores pretenda manchar!

    unfortunately I never got a chace to climb the volcan de agua or know much about how long it takes to make the top.
    Question: If I start walking from where Rudy took this picture…how long would it take me to summit? Can it be done in one day (starting early in the morning)?

  • A gorgeous photograph, to go along with a gorgeous country!

  • This is a beautiful image. The fluffy wyhite clod against the brilliant blue sky is lovely.

    Hey MO, I went up and it took us the whole day, mind you we went up at a turtle pace, plus we were lucky, my cousins later told me that after we left they decided to go up again and they got robbed!!!! So anyhow, good luck!

    Great Cumulus clouds!

    Erika, Did you use a guide? On a scale from 1 – 10 (10 hardest) how would you rate the climb/descent? How unfortunately about your cousins being robbed. It’s a shame crap like that has to happen on such a beautiful landscape. Are robberies rare around the volcano or are they a common occurrence?

    Mo, my cousins took us to the closest “pueblo” to the volcano, then they asked around where the pathway starts to go up, we found it, and up we started. No guides. If you follow the pathway you will find the 12 or 13 crosses symbolizing the falls of Jesus Christ (great photo ops). Following the path, it wasn’t that bad, since it goes on in zig zags. I’d give the climb a 7, mind you there are parts that I’d give it a 9! If you do decide to climb the volcano, apart from water, take some chocolate or something sweet with you, you’ll need it once you get higher up. BTW – the decent was the easiest and I don’t know if the robberies are rare or not, better ask someone that actually lives in Guatemala, I haven’t been back since the year 2000…
