Mexico Trip 2012 - Chichen Itza Ruins

Chichen Itza Ruins

The pyramid of Kulkulkan/Quetzalcoatl. A temple that has become very iconic this year!

Our birthday trip to Chichen Itza! While it has some of the most spectacular and well maintained structures, thousands of ghostly columns, and carvings everywhere... the site was busy with tourists and obnoxious peddlers of souvenirs making jaguar screams.
