Volcan Santa Maria

Last Friday, for our last day in Xela, three friends and I did the lasted thing we realllllly wanted to do in Guatemala... climb that volcano!! 

We started our climb at 5:30 AM and 2,333 meters and ended at about 8:30 and 3772 meters. I don't know where that rates as far as mountain climbing goes but it was really steep and pretty difficult, especially since we started out at a high altitude! But it was WAY more than worth is, as you are about to see. 

Right as we got to the top the baby volcano, Santiaguito, was erupting!!

"ahhhhh, that's where we just were"
