Above this fork the Usumacinta is a fine broad stream, sometimes more than half a mile from bank to bank.
This is just what we do find in the group of ruins on the Usumacinta River of which we have already given a short account.
Typical of these rivers are the Grijalva and the Usumacinta.
Some hours more and we reach the broad level, and set up our tents on the Chotal, a tributary of the Usumacinta.
The most numerous and extensive are on the Usumacinta river.
We raise our camp, en route for the Yalchilan Pass, and arrive in the evening on the right bank of the Usumacinta.
