Meanwhile, while "working" as a "guide" for Quetzaltrekkers here in Leon, I have been up to the crater of Volcan Telica twice. This is the most amazing volcano hike yet and provides everyone with an opportunity to see lava glowing! This hike begins in the small village of San Jacinto, famous for boiling mud pools, before heading through the lush green Nicaraguan countryside. After climbing for about 2 or 3 hours, we arrive at the campsite; kind of a Garden of Eden looking place with lots of trees, rocks, and grazing cows and horses. The crater is just a short 15 minute walk away. The edge drops off straight down about 600 or 700 feet to the bottom where you can see glowing lava. It´s an amazing place and the pictures will be better than my words. Check ém out when I get them uploaded. Other than that, I´m just enjoying where I am for the moment. More tourists are signing up for hikes and I am staying busy.
