Elevation: 14,000'

Hello from Piedra Grande, our high camp on Pico de Orizaba at 14,000 feet. Today we left La Malintzi and traveled to Dr Reyes’s (our host and outfitter) and prepared our equipment for the climb.  Then we loaded up the trucks and made our way to camp.  Kind of nice to drive so high and save our legs for the climb.

Now it’s off to bed to get our last full night’s sleep before the big one.  Hope everyone up north is doing great.
