Hike of Horrors!



The hike at Cerro Biotope Cahui didn't live up to the gruesome beginning - after the start, things were very much alive! Alive, instead of coiled up, floating in jars. As soon as I saw Jekyll's table -  full of skulls and all things bizarre - I knew this would make a great post for Halloween month.  

The nature preserve was located on the tip of lake Peten in El Remate, Guatemala. If you're lucky, you might see all of the above. Or unlucky.


A monkey perhaps?



Formally a deer. I think. 


A bat. Yuck!


Snakes and such.


Possibly a jaguar. 


A peccary or Tapir.


It's alive! A streaked-headed woodpecker.


A beautiful grey fox.





A  Violaceous Trogan.

We didn't locate the Mayan graves or climb to the top, for a stunning, panoramic view of the area. But, we didn't end up in a jar either.

This week, I'm highlighting two famous final destinations in the South: Haunted Savannah Cemeteries!

Glad you didn't end up in a jar! Beautiful fox

These skeletal remains are quite fantastic. It’s interesting to glimpse at what’s going on behind fur, feathers and skin. All things considered I’d rather be on a table somewhere than in a jar that's a bit claustrophobic. :)

Things in jars just make me shiver - I like the adorable fox much better! Thanks for hosting!

Hello, friends and online buddies, I seem to be back after a long health hiatus. It has been quite dreadful but now consists of a few very sore spots hither and thither.
I am looking forward to viewing all of your comments and photos.
In the meantime, I am not a robot.
