Acatenango Overnight

Is it supposed to this nice during the rainy season?

I was on top of Acatenango Volcano the other day guiding a group up the mountain to spend the night. We ran into another one of our groups on their way down who had spent the morning hiking up the big ole beast only to get views of fog.

We had much better luck with stellar weather, crystal clear skies and an amazing sunset. It was one of those days of legend, and oddly enough it came smack dab in the middle of one of the rainiest rainy seasons I can remember.
We camped in "the Pines" expecting the worst.

However, by about 530pm with a cup of hot tea in hand I realized we were about to witness a pretty stellar sunset and view back out to the west overlooking about 10 volcanoes all the way out to the Mexican Border.
It was a pretty great trip. Great friends, good food and weather that couldnt be beat. Hope you guys come by the shop and sign up to drag yourselves up this big old bitch, and I hope you have as great a trip as we just did!
