We made the journey up and down valleys and mountains to get to San Marcos. Yes, I was sweating and panting for most of it, but the views were so worth it on the water breaks.

The game of 20 questions comes in handy and so is a fun hiking partner. After a few rounds of games and Guatemalan cookies (actually just chips a'hoy) we made it to San Marcos; you can feel the crystals and good vibes from far far away.

Our hike ended at the edge of the town in the nature preserve, which is a gorgeous view and a deck to jump off into the lake called "the Trampoline". Sorry, no cool pics of either of us...just envision it.
We did some shopping at the local "Whole Foods" (otherwise known as the sidewalk) and made it back to our humble abode for another deeeelish home-cooked meal of veggie quesidillas, fresh garden salad and zuchinis. Not a bad way to end a day of hiking all over this Lake.
