Mexico Volcanoes: Waterfall & Team at Altzimoni Hut on Ixta

Elevation: 12,000'

We’re on Ixta!  Well we’re actually at the Altzimoni Hut but we did get up to 14,600’ on Ixta today.  That means we set new altitude records for the whole team.  That’s always cool.

The day started with an 8 am pick up from La Malinche. Our fantastic driver, Rogelio, took us to the best breakfast in Mexico at the Hotel Mission Tlaxcala.  Very nice.

Then we hit the market in the town of Amecameca for some last minute food and water before driving to the Altzimoni Hut.  After dropping our gear we set out for a hike.  We took the same route that we will follow tomorrow and I dropped some water at our high point.  We’ll pick that up on the way through on our way to high camp and I’ll check in again from there.
