Horseback Ride

During our weekend trip to Copan we took a three hour horseback ride up to the top of a mountain. The scenery was beautiful and we got to visit a small traditional village partway through the journey.

On our way up the mountain!

At the top of the mountain we met these children selling dolls made from corn husks.

A view from the top!

And another view….absolutely gorgeous!

There is a women’s aresania community in the village. They have several looms and they weave different items to sell to tourists.
