Description:
This is the meandering hike from the parking lot, through the entire Tikal site. If you look at the elevation profile, you'll note some steep climbs, which was me climbing a number of pyramids. I actually raced up the Lost World Pyramid against a guy 20 years younger than me. It was a full-on sprint/climb up about 73 BIG stone steps. He beat me by about 10 seconds. Here's a pic of the pyramid we raced up.<br> <img src="http://www.delange.org/Tikal2/Dsc00002.jpg"/><BR>We found out after we finished that a woman had slipped, fallen, and died two months earlier. I always see lots of monkeys in Tikal, and this trip was no exception. Oh, it probably goes without saying that Tikal is the most spectacular Mayan site.
