It was a 30 minute pre-dawn hike through the still dark jungle, as the shrieking calls of howler monkeys echoed through the recesses of the numerous stone structures. I was traveling throughout Belize and Guatemala on a film project focusing on the ancient Maya and had climbed to a lofty perch on the highest temple for early morning shots at the ancient site of Tikal, in northern Guatemala. Low clouds swirled about the highest trees and rising towers as morning broke above the canopy of the Peten jungle expanse. They stand as testaments it seems, of a once great civilization, lost to the arrogance and failures of man.
