Geographical Exploration Part 2

These pics were taken in Belize. There are two crater photos with lakes inside. These craters are part of the asteroid impact associated with the Chicxulub Crater located on the Yucatan Penninsula of Mexico. The main crater is 112 miles wide. These two smaller craters are believed to have been smaller particles trailing along with the main asteroid. These are the asteroids believed to have been responsible for the disruption in earths climate leading to the death/extinction of dinosaurs. The other photos are in the Maya Mountains and of the Caracol Maya Temple near Guatumala.
