The first mound...

...at The Altun Ha Archaeological Reserve in Belize, and the many steps to the top.

Happy Silly Tuesday even though this isn't a silly shot.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Quite a steep climb. Could this be a tomb of some sort?

Was that mound initially supposed to become a pyramid or some kind of holy place for sacrifices?

@Japanalia: I honestly don't know; it was unbearably hot and humid, so we wilted before going too very far into the area.

The humidity was so high, I think we could have bottled it! ;(

The first of many steps to climb!! I love your PoV here which gives a great sense of scale as to the height one must climb as they ascend to the top!

@Steven: Thanks, Steven.

I would never make it up those steps as there is no handrail! Looks amazing though.

@Ruthiebear: Me too ... I guess the key is 'don't look down'. ;D
