LAKE ( November 12, 2014)

 



Unfortunately the clouds rolled in and the views were gone.


At 6 am on Monday morning we left and it was a beautiful clear day and en route to the City we saw Volcano Fuega shoot a huge, like two thousand feet in the air a smoke plume  which was pretty amazing to see. Took us exactly three hours to get to the Stephans house in the City where his mother made us a delicious breakfast and I fixed my chain guard for the tenth time. I said my fond farewells  to my Guatemalan friends and Cisco drove me out of the city and headed for Samuc Champay which was a seven hour drive north. I arrive at 6 pm  and probably had the best full day ride so far except for the amount of wrecks I saw and the mini bus in front of me  hitting a dog which I had to avoid.


 


Took me two and a half hours from Cobain to Samuc Champay which is only 67 km cause the road is dirt and rough for 20 km and then I took a wrong turn and was totally out of my league on the road.It was brutal and almost lost the bike four times but made it out unscathed but hot and tired to Utopia Hostel where they don't serve meat, how unhealthy is that........


A lot of dred locks, dope smoking and granola but just in an absolutely stunning area on the river in the jungle.


Was probably the most dramatic scenery I saw today from Lake Atitlan to Samuc and the dirt road was a huge challenge for me, nothing I have ever encountered before .
