More photos from El Mirador trip

Most of the best El Mirador photos, and the write up about our trip, are on the previous blog, but one of the group took the following additional photos, which I thought might be worth saving and sharing. Remember, you can see a larger version of any of the photos by clicking on it.

Dinner at the hotel Casona del Lago in Flores, where we had our Area Council meetings on Sunday. The four closest are me, Elder Falabella, David Sheets, and Elder Clarke.
Helicopter landing site in clearing in jungle.

Getting around on the motorized "mules," which made Monday's exploration of El Mirador much easier, or at least enabled us to see much more. Drivers are Richard Hansen and David Sheets.

The floor is part of the original Mayan "highway." These connected the various cities in the Mirador Basin, and major sites within cities. They were quite wide and elevated and smooth.

Our dining area, open on all sides, but with a roof for protection during the rainy season.

Hiking along the path which leads from El Mirador to the nearest town, some twenty miles away.
