Cerro Quemado, Quetzaltenango

Last weekend, a few of my friends and I climbed to the top of Cerro Quemado in the outskirts of Quetzaltenango.  For me, it was a really hard climb, as I come from Florida, the flattest land of all.  Aside from this, I’ve only climbed a couple of mountains in Arizona.

I thought I wouldn’t make it several times… but I kept pushing myself.  When we finally got to the top, I breathed in the intense beauty of the place.  For those of you who are familiar with energy vortexes, it’s the same feeling I had at the top of the rocks of Cerro Quemado.

At the top, I got to participate in a Mayan ceremony, giving thanks for the naturaleza.  I can’t explain the feelings I had, but I know I feel extremely fortunate to have experienced a ceremony of the people here only 2 1/2 weeks in.  Here are a couple photos from the top:

    Thanks! I’m not sure actually, but I imagine yes because it’s really high up.
