Yes, we have a furnace. And that kept us decently warm until we went to bed, and then I just shut it off for the night. But I wasn't expecting it to get that cold. Besides, these built in RV furnaces are terribly inefficient. They waste both electricity and propane. Can't wait to buy one of these Mr. Heater Indoor-Safe Portable Radiant Heater when we get up to Arizona.
Anyhow, we have a nice little 1,500 watt electric heater, so we splurged and paid the extra 80 pesos ($6.50) for electricity yesterday so that we can stay warm. We don't mind waking up to 7C or 8C inside the motorhome, but 2C was a little too chilly for us! I left it on all night last night and it was around 14C inside when we woke up this morning. Much better!
Despite the chilly start to the day, we had a nice clear blue sky and the temperature went up to about 13C (57F). Great hiking weather, so we took advantage of that to find a trail. We started up a hill, just exploring an area behind the campground, and eventually came to a 5 km (3 mile) mountain bike trail that we walked along the edge of the hills overlooking the town.
There are a lot of caves in these hills, and some of the natives still live in them.
This one is a little small for living in, but somebody had a fire here recently.
Kevin, and the city of Creel.
Ruth. I tried to get her to stand up, but she's a little afraid of falling over the edge!
We're headed over that way.
Nice view of the city.
Zoomed in on the campground. Can you see Sherman?
Selfie on the trail!
Ruth, with some of the amazing rock formations.
Kevin. More rocks!

Great day we had yesterday.
Today, we're driving about 50 kms (30 miles) to Divisadero where we hope to find a secure place to leave Sherman for a night or two while we take the Copper Canyon train to El Fuerte!
