We are on the road again!!

Today’s goal is to climb to the topmost point of El Salvador. Got a first glimpse of it as we got out of San Salvador. Of the three mountains, the right one is the tallest one. If I can climb to the top of that 7,812 feet high crater rim of Ilamatepec volcano (also called Santa Ana volcano), I am told there is an amazing view waiting for me. The challenge is that the last one third of the trail after you clear the tree line is less of a trail and more of climbing on rock juttings with no shade whatsoever.

That one last erupted about seventeen years back.

So, two things. I have to survive the trip up and down. And the volcano needs to hold off any more eruptions for a few hours.

Wish me luck!!
