Belize Break Out!

In February 2006 I milked my wilderness therapy schedule for a sweet 5 weeks off. The price was 3 weeks of work, and the pay off was Belize! The idea was a backpacking photo expedition to central America, an adventure, and to learn better how to travel on my own. It was a brilliant success and I had an amazing experience. Traveling alone I made friends easily, and the pictures I took on this trip feuled my increasingly out of hand photography addiction, still out of control. Here are the high lights.

Sunset from Caye Caulker, paradise.

Scuba diving was a big draw for me in Belize. This is me on a dive... the Blue Hole perhaps?

This is Tabacco Caye, off the cost of Dangriga, southern Belize.

Scotty Booth from my Furman Daze joined me for a little while; this picture just about sums his visit up.

An Osprey flies back to her babies on Tobacco Caye.

A juvenile Basillisk, or Jesus Christ Lizard, gets ready to run.

Monkey, make your move... Tikal.

Robby, Brian, and "woman from Amsterdam" in front of 1000 foot falls. Thanks to Robby for driving us all there from San Ignacio.
