    Mayan Ruins

    Anybody home?

    This is an entrance to one of many un-excavated Mayan sites we saw on in the jungle. Centuries of jungle foliage all but cover up the sites, leaving just a mound of dirt with some exposed rock. When the archeologists come to work on them they dig to reveal the structure.

    Of course, the Belize government is far more interested in the big sites for tourism purposes, so sites like this will have to wait for an official dig. We were told that it's illegal to conduct your own dig even if the ruins are on your property. And that doesn't stop looters from poking around for something good before anyone else gets to see.

    Belize River and Valley

    On horseback, we rode through the jungle until we saw this beautiful view of the Belize River and valley.

    The resort is somewhere below. I understand there are plans to build cabanas where this picture was taken.

    At the end of our horseback ride, we came to another terrific view. We waited here for our ride back to the resort. No hurry, I thought.

    Jungle trail

    Jungle trail

    The trails through the jungle need constant attention or else they disappear.

    We hiked this part of the trail, as the horses would have had trouble with it.
