Location: The Oregon Cascades, near PDX, United States

Our home in the Oregon Cascades, provides us with peaceful days, and star-filled nights. We are grateful for fresh air, clean water, and enough space for our garden.

On Friday we checked out of Cahal Pech Village. We met up with our friend, Larry Wellington, from last year's tour. We followed Larry out through the cattle country of The Cayo District, to the location of his Adventure Camp!

Larry has been posting a blog that gives a good overview of his trials and tribulations in starting his new rustic adventure camp in Belize. If you have time to read his blog, you will have a good idea of what it takes to get something started in Belize! http://www.larrywellington.com

Click on Larry's blog and read all the comments, and be sure to check out the photographs too. He has been living in Belize with his dog Tasha, since August 2007.

The camp can only be reached by canoe...you can see a picture of the crossing in my photo...

Once across, you are faced with a long climb, but I call it the Stairway to Heaven, because when you reach the top you will see that your lodging is on top of an ancient Mayan temple!

This site is called Guacamayo, and it has not been excavated by any archeologists, or even by looters! It remains in pristine condition resulting from years of the jungle slowly reclaiming the area. After having visited other sites in various stages of reconstruction, it was an honor to explore this temple that has stood silently for such a long time. There is much magic in the air of this place, and I hope all of you will get a chance to visit it someday!
