Hey this is Seth standing on top of El Pico de Orizaba also known as Citlaltépetl , the tallest point in Mexico, the third highest in North America.  It took us about 7 ½ hours from high camp to reach the summit.  Everybody did great, it’s a beautiful day and the boys are psyched let’s here them (yells in background).  We will check in again when we are back down in Tlachichucha this evening.  And tomorrow we are going home.
