We had actually done some coffee and computer time and didn't really have breakfast until after 10:00am. Oh well, we weren't on any kind of time schedule.

The backyard. I gave the little blue car a cleanup while Ruth did some laundry.
There are a lot of state parks in Mexico, but they normally aren't as manicured as the state or provincial parks north of the border. The one we went to yesterday actually became a state park way back in 1909, well before most of the U.S. had a state park system. Interesting.
This park actually does have a man made walking path that goes for 3 kms (1.8 miles).
We weren't really planning on going for a "hike", so we only had our sandals on. But at the end of the man made path was a trail that goes to a waterfall. The trail was actually pretty rough and we should have had more than just sandals on, but we wanted to see the waterfall. Hey, if there's a cave, a waterfall, or a great view, it's pretty tough for us to say no to a hike!
We stopped a couple of girls to take our photo. They did a good job!
Lots of different butterflies in the hills here.
An hour and fifteen minutes into it, we are getting some great views.
And then, we could hear the waterfall so we knew we were getting close. There had actually been quite a few people on the trail, and as we rounded the bed and the waterfall came into view there were more people. And this...
What some people will do for wedding photos!
This girl was in the freezing cold water in the pool below the falls. We're assuming the wedding had already taken place because you wouldn't think all this water would be any good for her dress! Strange.
Juan at the top of the falls. Not a great volume of water, but it was a pretty spot anyhow.
Ruth, still playing like a little kid!
Not sure how far we hiked, but we were gone for a little over three hours. Felt good to get out and get some fresh air and some good exercise. Came back and did some grocery shopping so that Ruth could make a curry for tonights dinner, and I made an Italian penne pasta dish for us all last night. Delicious, even if I do say so myself!
We're enjoying relaxing here and so we're going to stay one more night!
