It was uphill almost every step of the way, and it wasn't long before we had more beautiful views. It's interesting the perspectives you get looking at the valley from the different hills.
Ruth, hiking up the dirt road we found.
These spiders build webs in the cactus trees beside the road.
Nice view only half way up. Hacienda Contreras is circled in red.
Heading back down after reaching the top. Ruth, on the trail near the bottom left.
Going back down. Love the scenery here.
Looking back at the hill we climbed. We made it to the area circled in red above. Nice blue sky all day.
Barb is leaving to go back to Chicago today to visit. So we're going to go along for the ride when Sal drops her off at Guadalajara airport. It's about two and a half hours each way from here to the airport. And we'll probably stop at some of the bigger stores to stock up on a few items. Because Barb won't be back until after we leave, we won't see here again until we return at Christmas time, so we wnated to take them out for a meal. We went to a nice restaurant just down the road from the campground. Including tip, it was 600 pesos ($46.80) for the four of us to have dinner and two drinks each. Would have paid that much just for the drinks in Canada!
My eyes are lightning fast! They close as soon as the flash goes off. Or is it because all of the drinks are in front of me, and this is the way I looked anyhow...?
This restaurant used to be a horse stable!
And I had to finish off with a pic of our grandson Cameron. Many of you will remember when we rushed up to Nova Scotia for the birth of our first grandson, and Cameron is now six and a half months old! Our daughter has a friend who does photography and she sent us a great picture of him...
