Gear Junkie AWOL in Belize

Signing off from the blog, and life in general, for a few days to head south seeking tropical air and mountain adventures in the interior of Belize, where the Mayan Mountains jut thousands of feet up from the jungle.

Navigable rivers and streams like the Macal drop through valleys, providing canoe and kayaking venues. I’ll be based at Black Rock Lodge for most of the trip, which is an eco-lodge in the dense rainforest above the Macal River in the Mayan Mountains. Hiking, caving, bird watching and animal tracking are on the itinerary. Will do a blog update or two if I can find a signal and log in somewhere far in the jungle brush. . .
