N is for Nature Reserve

Just outside of Panajachel, there is a Nature Reserve. When my brother-in-law Billy came into town a few weeks ago, we went and checked it out. It was a nice little hike and very green and beautiful. It felt like we were in a movie, like one of those scripture movies. 

 We crossed maybe a dozen rickety bridges that were made out of chain link fence with some wires and wood spread evenly alongside the fence to walk on.  I'm use to bridges where the floor of the bridge has the wood pretty close together so you don't have to worry about your feet slipping through...with these ones your feet were barely big enough to cross without worry.  I still had to keep my eyes down just to be safe. 

Along the way, we came upon a Monkey. He was so fun to watch. We were hoping to run into some of his family, but at least he decided to give us a little show that day. 

He's a cute little fella.

The trail we decided to take also had a beautiful waterfall.  This was also where we realized that we had gone the opposite direction then we were suppose to. That's just how we do it I guess. ;)  

We had a fun time walking around the Nature Reserve and seeing more of the beauty that Guatemala has to offer!
