Volcan de Pacaya -- A Birthday Wish

Coleman's wish this year for his 10th birthday was to climb Volcan de Pacaya with his dad. This was an especially poignant request since Dave couldn't be in Guatemala for his birthday. So before we left Antigua Dave and Cole did the Volcan de Pacaya sunset tour. Here are some shots from their day.


Where else in the world can you capture 4 volcanoes in one camera lens at the same time? The sloping edge of Volcan Pacaya is in the foreground with Volcan de Agua, de Fuego, and de Acatenango (these are the three surrounding Antigua) in the background.

Yes, that is molten lava billowing toward my strapping lads.

Hurry and take the picture...I'm getting a little sweaty.

I just love the juxtaposition of the volcano, clouds, sun and dudes in this shot.

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart! I'm glad you got to climb a volcano with your dad. I love you. ~M

This should have a comment and here it is. Baseballing, boys scouts and costco, should last forever but they don't....and then comes sailing and cruising and sunsets...and finally done, we're ready for what comes next and hopefully have just enough time to comtemplate an have that one really good and satisfying laugh at the whole thing...
Been there, done that, glad.
Happy for you all, too
