Elevation: 12,000'

Greetings everybody!
We are at the Altzimoni Hut at the base of Ixtaccihuatl, where we will be heading out to climb tomorrow.  All is well here. We’ve had clearing afternoon a little bit of cloud cover over Ixta right now but looks to be breaking up somewhat.  So, with fingers crossed we’ll go to bed (hoping for clear skies in the morning) and head up to our high camp tomorrow. The team is doing great.  We had a nice stop in Amecameca to pick up some last minute items, cruise around town and sort of check out what was going on and see some sites we may not otherwise have visited in Central Mexico.  We will call in from our high camp tomorrow.
