This trip we finally made the climb with Mynor, Josefa, their dogs Coby and Max, and a mutual friend, Daniel. We rode in the back of a pickup to the gate to the park, then started off through farm land and up and up and up.
At the 1st mirador (view point) we ran into Griselda and Antonio and their boys.
The town across the lake is Santiago Atitlán.
And down we went.
There's a complete set of photos from this hike here. HAPPY TRAILS!
