The Road to Tikal

To be fair, about 80% of the 75 miles of road between Chaa Creek and Tikal are paved (or what passes for paved in Guatemala).  However, the first 12 miles of road after passing into Guatemala from Belize are NOT paved.  

The road is very dusty now (and reportedly a real mess in the rainy season).  I suspect the drivers must have to replace their air filters after every trip.  Needless to say we drove with the windows up.  I opened a window and stuck my arm out to get this shot, and now the automatic lens cover on my camera has stopped working properly.
