Mexico Volcanoes: JJ & Team Enjoyed Great Views on La Malinche Hike

Hello everyone at RMI. This is JJ Justman calling in with the Mexico Volcanoes adventure team. We had a great day today getting out of Mexico City and arriving in La Malinche where we had our first acclimatization day. For those you don’t know a little bit about La Malinche, it’s an old volcano, it’s non-glaciated. It’s actually known as the Weeping Woman.  La Malinche is one of Cortez’s mistresses. It’s a beautiful peak here, standing at 14,640’. Today, our team made it up to 14,000’; had a great trail side lunch. And we returned back down to our cabanas, where we are showering up and getting ready for a great dinner down here in camp. Tomorrow the plan is waking up a little bit early and heading out the door and getting to Ixta. But before we do that, we’ll have a little bit of shopping to do, some last minute items for our dinners and breakfasts, but everyone is doing really well. The weather here is absolutely beautiful. We had great views of Ixta, Popo, Orizaba, and of course La Malinche. Knock on wood we’re hoping the weather stays, because it was nice to get a little bit of a suntan today and hopefully tomorrow we’ll get even a little more sun. We’ll touch base and let you know how everything is going. Thanks for following along.
