Today, we hiked for a few hours and arrived at the camp of La Florida. We soon realized that the biggest trees of the entire trip were HERE. And whoa, they were huge.
When I say huge, I mean that to hug around the base of the tree trunk, it would take at least 8 people. With their arms spread. That huge. The Ceiba (pronounced Say-buh) is the national tree of Guatemala. And Guatemala is known as the Land of Trees, therefore, we just HAD to climb it.
So, following our afternoon siesta, a lunch of pasta and cucumber salad, and an encounter with a crazy, nutty, wack-O professor, we did.
Welcome to life above the surrounding canopy, 80 feet up.
After a quick photo shoot, the sun set, so we zipped down our climbing ropes into the dark abyss of the jungle floor.
Blake over dinner:
“Can you pass that hot sauce a little closer? It’s gonna get me through the noche. And the mañana. And the tarde.”
