It would have been nice to be able to see it within context-is there a more appropriate covering that could be used which would still offer protection but would not be so intrusive

Wow. I only wish it had been easier to photograph (the large awning suspended over the whole staircase, although necessary, was photographically difficult). Hello, Photoshop?

This is a major site and being slowly reconstructed to try and understand what the glyphs say and what the statues are. Its short of a '5' because its not easy to see and less easy to understand.

Amazing staircase, but it probably doesn't deserve its own location on Trip Advisor. It's part of the Copan Ruins, go see them all!
