Happy Fall!  When we got back from our 5 year anniversary trip we found this posted on National Geographic Daily News.

The photo was originally taken by Carver on our honeymoon when we visited the Chichen Itza Archaeological Park for the Autumn Equinox.

El Castillo, Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico.

Here is the blurb:

Slithering Into Fall

Crowds gather around El Castillo at Mexico’s ancient Maya city of Chichen Itza on the autumnal equinox of 2005.

Hitting the pyramid at just the right angle, sunlight casts an undulating shadow on the side of a staircase each equinox. When the shadow aligns with a monumental stone head at El Castillo’s base, a titanic, glowing serpent is born.
