Tree growing over the Lamanai Mayan Ruins

This beautiful photo depicts the way that nature has taken its course over time. Underneath the tree, is what is left of this particular spot at the Lamanai Mayan Ruins. The roots of this tree have grown over the ruins and expand far outward, entangling the rubble with the roots.
