Pacaya Volcano Hike

About two dozen volcanoes rise above the Guatemala's mountainous landscape.  Only a few of these are still active, but the presence of hot springs and steam vents on the flanks of inactive volcanoes hints at the subterranean power sealed beneath them.  Few tourist will return home without picture of volcanoes in their collection of snapshots.....
