Altun Ha!

Destination, Altun Ha: Mayan Ruins – Belmopan, Belize, C.A.

The world is big.  I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.  ~John Muir

There are a lot of tombs here.  As well as a coveted jade head.  These Mayan Ruins have been beautifully kept for centuries.  It is well hidden and surrounded by trees.  It was so quiet and peaceful here.

Can you imagine how long this structure below took, building it rock, by rock, by rock, back in the days when they didn’t have modern tools, concrete, and cranes?  I can’t even fathom how long it must have taken!

This was a memorable experience.  We went to the highest points and over viewed the ruins.  It was amazing and bittersweet at the same time, knowing lives were buried inside.  But what a gorgeous setting for a tomb.

Until our next adventure~
