Travel Log # 9 Mexico 1994 & 1995 Part 3 Hiking

Looking at the mountains off in the not too far distance some of us got a yearning to climb! Jerry and I love to hike. We could see what looked like a black cave so that became our goal. We’d climb to the Black Cave! We kept our eyes open for any rattle snakes along the way. Luckily we didn’t see any. They’re not too active this time of year.  We also had to be careful of the cacti or we’d get stuck. In fact, one man did. They just couldn’t seem to get the pickers out. Finally they asked me to turn around while he dropped his jeans and they proceeded to extract the needles! Ouch!

    Looks like it was a wonderful hike! Glad you made it to your goal and it was worth the trek.


    • Thanks for your comment! Yes, it was a good hike! Later, at one of our campfires we were given special recognition and an award…Jim made us each a great walking stick out of the insides of a cactus. We still have them. They’re very sturdy.
