Volcanoes Fuego and Acatenango Framed with Guatemalans Flags

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Volcanoes Fuego and Acatenango Framed with Guatemalans Flags

Yesterday we took a look south to see the colossal Volcán de Agua towering over the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala. Today we turn our sight southwest slightly to see the hyperactive Volcán de Fuego and the slightly taller and with two-crater Volcán Acatenango. By the way, Volcano Acatenango is not inactive; last time it erupted was 1972. Also, Volcán Acatenango is the one people climb to see the ferocious activity of Volcano Fuego, especially at sunrise when the skyline is usually more clear. Even in today’s picture where I framed the volcanoes inside the flagstaffs above the Palacio del Ayuntamiento, you can still see Volcano Fuego laughing and puffing.

We continue with the countdown to the 15th anniversary of AntiguaDailyPhoto.com on May 1st. You know, I will be stopping the daily updates on May 1st, 2021; the site will live on and I will post updates from time to time. It has been a wild ride, 5,479 days by the time we celebrate the 15th anniversary on May Day. Thank you all for your support and encouragement through the years.
