Saturday: Hiking the Izalco Volcano

Weekends provide an opportunity to explore the local area and familiarize ourselves with the country.  This past Saturday, our destination was the Izalco Volcano at Cerro Verde.

After about 1300 steps down into a valley, we began our trek up the volcano.
We made it to the top!

Wish I'd been there! I see that Madonna is smiling, as always :-)
