It’s hard to ever tire of #sunset…

It's hard to ever tire of #sunset...

It’s hard to ever tire of #sunset over #Lago #Atitlán. In the heart of the #Sololá department of #Guatemala, Atitlán was long a place of spiritual power for the #Maya, and now one of economic power through tourism for the local people and the country as a whole. But, sadly, like so many waterways, Atitlán needs help. Introduced black #bass in the 1950’s wiped out many native species and disrupted the lake’s ecology, and now dangerous blooms of #Microcystis #cyanobacteria have ravaged the lake in 2009 and again in 2015. That said, Atitlán remains a destination of intense beauty, deep culture, and wonderful history…and one well worth visiting. #liveyouradventure @wendebvalentine #lakeatitlan #lagoatitlan #travelstoke #panajachel #santacatarinapalopo
