While we're not usually ones to wake up early, sometimes we've been rewarded for the effort when we have. Waking up to double rainbows while camping atop El Hoyo volcano in Nicaragua was one of those moments.
The previous day's trek to the top of the volcano was brutal at times, especially when Dan dragged me down Cerro Negro (volcano #1). Despite all the scrapes on my legs and aches in my muscles, I woke up energized by this sunrise view. Nature will do that to you.

If you do find yourself in Leon, Nicaragua, consider taking a trek with Quetzal Trekkers. They organize several volcano treks, including this one called El Hoyo. All the proceeds from the treks goes to helping street kids and we've found the dedication and passion of the volunteer guides hard to beat. A great experience all the way around.
