Snow-capped Volcán Acatenango

Snow-capped Acatenango Volcano

Sometimes, often, I just feel lucky.

Let me explain.

Just four days ago I was telling you about the pruning of the gravileas trees. What I did not tell you was the those Gravileas trees were in the adjacent coffee plantation to our house. The simple fact that the trees were pruned a couple of days ago enabled a west view towards the Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes and allowed me this morning to photograph this rare event: snow on top of Volcán Acatenango [3,976 m (13,045 ft) for Pico Mayor (Highest Peak) and 3,880 (12,729 ft) for Yepocapa].

Now, my luck is your luck since I share everything with you. Do you feel lucky?

    Wow, if snow were luck, I would never fail at anything! 😉
    How strange that the snow has been missing from the Boston landscape for a month, and yet, there it is in Guatemala. Thanks for the luck – I will put it to good use.

    My luck on the other hand was not having camera to hand and by the time I got it, the clouds had covered the summit.

    Beautiful photo, I asked around and people that have lived here 40+ years have never seen snow on Acatenango.
