Mexico Volcanoes: JJ & Team at Ixta’s Altzimoni Camp

Hello everyone following the RMI blog. This is the Mexican Volcanoes adventure checking in for the day. Our team made it up here. We are officially on Ixta. We’re at the lower hut, had a good day getting up. The weather is absolutely beautiful.  Good view of Popo, which is a little bit of a smoking volcano right now in the distance. And a great view of Ixta, which is our objective for the next couple of days. But in the mean time, our group is packing gear and getting everything set. We looked at the tents, everything’s in order.  So now my job is cut out for me. We’re going to do a little bit of cooking here and feed the team. For starters, we’re going to go with a tortilla soup, but before that we have a little bit of chips and homemade salsa. And then for our main course, we’re having a little carne asada. That was a special recipe given to me by RMI Guide, Dan Windham. Looking forward to making a good dinner tonight, getting our bellies full. We’re at 13,000’ right now so we are officially acclimatizing. So we’re going to have a good evening down here on the lower slopes of Ixta and then tomorrow we are going to move up to High Camp on Ixta. We’ll check back in and let you know how everything’s going, but all is well. Thanks for following along and we will touch back with all of you tomorrow. Take care. Bye.
