    very cool....pics from our trip to Chichen Itza...at least we got to climb it! Is it still closed to climbing? Wonder if since it is now one of the 7 wonders of the world if they will ever let anyone climb again? I would like to go climb the Observatory now (wasn't that the alternate structure they allow people to climb now?) We watched a documentary on the History channel a few weeks back about the Mayan ruins.

    our girls pre-climb:

    the scary 'trap door' inside the top:

    the bird's eye view from the top (notice, no railing for those that have never been...that lady wasn't getting too close to the edge..lol)

    this was actually Kevin and Ashlyn coming down:
