Day 25

Lago Ayarza in Guatemala was the subject for Day 25. The sun was shining on this beautiful crater lake when we drove around the rim and I took this photo. The sides are very steep...yikes. For those who want to know...Wikipedia says, "The lake is a caldera that was created some 20,000 years ago by a catastrophic eruption that destroyed a twinned volcano and blanketed the entire region with a layer of pumice. The lake has a surface area of 14 km² and a maximum depth of 230 m. The lake has a surface elevation of 1409 m." Regardless it is beautiful!
