Weekend trip to Gracias Lempira and Copán Ruinas

The "Staircase" at the Mayan ruins. The steps have the story of the ancient civilization. Unfortunately when the ruins were found most of the blocks had fallen to the bottom. They have slowly rebuilt the staircase but they are still not sure what all the hieroglyphics mean

Nick and I in the "ball court". Apparently the Mayans used to play a special kind of ball game here. It wasn't really a game though....seeing as one of the players was usually sacrificed after the game...

The ruins are all situated in a forest in Copán. The trees were absolutely amazing.
