Itís a fairly long winding route out through the valley to the church. The horse trots and kicks up a cloud of dust for me to follow in, while the KLR gets really hot hauling itself through the deep sand and rocks. I get the feeling of being very alone riding out here. I have a guide that Iíve paid all of $3 to watch over me. Iím on KLR that barely can make it, so I canít run away from anyone. I block that thought from my mind, and keep plugging forward.

Finally we get to the church area. The road goes to within a 100 meters of the church. There is a taco stand there and covered parking. Iím off to the church, while my guide watches my stuff (I hope!!).
The church remnants and alter remnants are impressive. The lava flow buried the town, but these two parts of the church remain.
