Very nice catch, Mr. Holzmann! As you no doubt know by now, Google Earth's satellite imagery of the site stinks, and there is not even a marker on the map yet for this rather generous Maya site. I was not amused that I was not permitted to use a tripod on the site in 2011--I had to go to great lengths just to persuade the individual in charge of the site that day that a Nikon D90 is NOT a videocam--in any case, I had no intention of using it as one--but I did as well as I could hand held.
All of the site designations were interpolated from Dr. Jaime Awe's Maya Cities and Sacred Caves: A Guide to the Maya Sites of Belize, 2nd edition, published by Cubola Productions, 35 Elizabeth Street, Benque Viejo del Carmen, Belize, Central America; which I highly recommend to anyone interested in the Maya. As always errors are my own, and I will be delighted to be able to correct them as they are brought to my attention.
Since it is crown land it would seem to be OK to camp there and others have. The lake shore is rather wet and you shouldn't camp there as it would destroy the vegetation, but back in the trees I seem to recall there were some sites.
There is also McMurdo cabin in the next valley but I don't know who runs it (the guide book may say). Enjoy your stay there!
Thanks, I wasn't sure enough about that to mark the photo that way, but you've confirmed it, Changed the title now. Have you been there?
Note Grinnell is spelled with two n's.
I love the Bugs, however I only found rain when I was there.
Belle prise de vue, bravo. Cordialement, J-C.
Yes it sure was, and the weather was good. It
can be quite rainy.
Thanks! It was surprising pleasant that day, and the view from the tent that morning was exquisite.
Thanks for your vote, Wolf, I really appreciate it! Happy trails!
Thanks for liking this nice Bulgarian city :)
