Mexico’s Volcanoes

Mexico’s Volcanoes: Team Checks in after Ixta Climb

Well it’s been quite a day. This morning (technically speaking) we arose to a pretty full moon and gave climbing Ixta a shot. The past few mornings have had Popo’s (Ixta’s neighboring volcano and protector) smoky plume ascending straight into the sky. These “no wind” mornings are a treat to climb in and this morning was certainly a treat. Our team cruised the perfect conditions left by last month’s storms and stood on top early this morning. We were able to see Orizaba in first light looming over Puebla where we now rest. Popo’s aforementioned plume actually glowed red with the magma exposed in it’s crater!  I’ve never seen it do that before. On our descent Ixta’s shadow stretched for miles and we pulled into camp seemingly just as a cold front made it’s way to the mountain. Quite a day.

Now for a little R&R here in Puebla before heading to Orizaba.

I am jealous, as the weather on our trip was not so cooperative. Congrats to the team!
