One of the fascinating things about trail running on vacation in Guatemala, is you get to run through agricultural areas along the way. In this area of highland Guatemala, the temperatures are mild year round. This makes it easy to grow lots of fruits and vegetables. One vegetable, as seen in the above photo, is onions. Running by one afternoon we saw this man watering the onions. He’s standing in a small canal with running water and using a large bowl to splash water on the raised beds. I will say running through the onions can be quite fragrant, but not enough to make you cry!
