Elevation: 14,000'

Hello this is Jake checking in from Mexico.

We are at Piedra Grande, the hut on Pico de Orizaba.  After a day of rest in Puebla, we took off for Tlachichuca early this morning.  After meeting with Dr. Reyes at his family’s climber hostile we took four wheel drive vehicles up to the hut.  We are turning in early to prepare for our climb tonight.  It is a little cloudy right now but other than that conditions are pretty good.  The peak comes out now and again and we are hoping things clear out for our climb tomorrow.

Wish us luck!  We will call in tomorrow.
