Guatemala, Jan-Feb 2009

We climbed seven volcanoes in Guatemala's Central Highlands, two of which were active (Pacaya, Fuego) and looked over a third active volcano - Santiaguto. We visited the cities of Antigua and Quetzaltenango and climbed nearby volcanoes of Agua, Acotenago, Santa Maria and Tajumulco. We visited Lake Atitlan and climbed our last volcano, San Pedro. After climbing over 28,000 ft over 2 weeks, we visited Tikal and its temples.
