Guatemala – “The Place of Many Trees!”

DSC01982 DSC02111  I've just returned from the beautiful country of Guatemala.  This was my first visit to this country and it won't be my last!  What a wonderful place with warm, friendly people.  As you can see from the title, the name Guatemala is taken from the meaning, "A Place of Many Trees."   There were great trees and flora and fauna there as well as impressive volcanos.
