About 15 minutes away from where Sherman is parked there is a hill we wanted to go up for a view, and there is a stairway with 580 steps to get up there! But first, we hiked a path around the hill to the farmland behind the nearby town of San Jeronimo.
We walked around the hill, but where the path came out it was easier to go into the town and see what was there.
The church was nothing special, inside or out.
But once again, it was decorated for Three Kings Day
The streets weren't very busy. Not with cars, anyhow!
Then, we walked to "the hill". Jorge had told us that there was a restaurant at the top of this hill, and although you can drive or walk the corkscrew dirt road up the hill, there are also 580 steps that take you directly to the top. We are always up for a challenge!
The bottom of the 580 steps.
The view from step #300. Yes, we were counting!
Taking a break at step #500.
The very worthwhile view from the top!
Looking south towards the city of Patzcuaro which is at the far end of the lake. Can you spot Sherman in this photo??
We took the circular road back down to the bottom. Went back to Sherman and had some lunch, then waited outside by the road to take the combi taxi into the town of Quiroga. You just flag them down when they go by. It costs 10 pesos (76 cents) each for the 11.5 km (7 mile) ride. Then, on the way back, you just tell them where you want off. This was a grocery shopping trip for us, so no photos. We had Jorge over to the motorhome for dinner and we talked about the other places to explore. We could easily spend another week here, but we are going to move to the nearby city of Uruapan on Sunday or Monday because there is a lot to see there as well!
