It’s almost become a monthly tradition. We went up as far as we could in the limited amount of time that we had, and only made it to the treeline. It rained the whole way back down. But we all had a great time, especially the dogs, who slept like babies during the 2-hour ride back to Puebla.
Here comes the fog!
The summit is behind all the clouds!

While most people were out of town at the beach, or downtown at the festivities, I spent the whole weekend relaxing. I took the dogs to La Malinche, I went for a couple bike rides, and I ate traditional food. A great long weekend, if you ask me!
Another side trail on La Malinche.
A “chancla,” which is a white bread roll filled with meat (chicken in this case) and served covered in spicy meat sauce, lettuce, avocado, and onion.

Rather than hike to the top again, this time we decided to explore some side trails.
The sun came out!
Apparently “Tío Pollo” was put to rest here, on a slope overlooking a stream that we could hear, but not see.
There were wildflowers everywhere!
