Cisco who I met in Chihuahua invited me to his house on the lake for the weekend. In the morning I went with Thomas and went to some of his drilling jobs which were near the coast. Had lunch at his house with his folks and then headed out with Cisco at 3 o clock to the lake. Was about a three hour drive from Antigua heading west. His place is in San Marcos and you can see all three volcanos, Volcan De San Pedro, Toliman and De Atitlan. In the last four years the lake has risen fifteen feet and numerous homes and properties have been lost as you can see in the photos.
There are twelve towns around the lake with chicken ferries that take you across, truly spectacular setting. The driveway is one of the steepest I have ever seen has to be like 35 degrees and was a little spooky coming down but still have to go up it on Monday morning.
