Our Second Day Exploring Tikal
Todays target was to climb the hundreds of wooden stairs to get to the top of Temple Four to get the best view over Tikal. The noise from the howler monkeys was incredible.
I was thrilled to get to the top for a sit down. Had to get tourist shots if only to prove we did it.
Back down at ground level we bimbled through the trees, well maintained tracks are easy to follow by map and Bear was in charge of deciding where to explore.
He did take us off the beaten path every so often.
Bear was dwarfed by this massive Ceiba tree.
Trees and monkeys everywhere.
We headed back to the main area and watched in horror as this man ‘waggled’ on the scaffolding.
We looked at the altars and stelae.
Our final look at this impressive monument.
ALL IN ALL A VERY SPECIAL PLACE
VAST, MAJESTIC AND NOT TO BE MISSED
