The Team is enjoying a well deserved rest today in the beautiful city of Puebla after our success on Iztaccihuatl yesterday. We are all greatly looking forward to our next objective El Pico De Orizaba tomorrow. It seems a couple of my cyber casts did not successfully go through so I will give you a brief recap of our progress so far.
We awoke yesterday at our high camp hut the Otis Macallister at the base of the Ayoloco Glacier in the early hours to a beautiful night with spectacular views of the lights of Amecameca, Tlalmanalco and Mexico City. Myself, Danny, Phil, Alex, Josh and Carl all made the summit in good style just as the sun was rising. Each team member at some point had to dig deep and their success is testament to the tenacity and perseverance they all exhibited. We were rewarded with spectacular views. After that we descended down to the La Joya trail head where we were meet by Arnoldo, our driver and tour guide who had kindly prepared a lunch for us and had our welcome change of clean clothes. The team spent today on a tour with Arnoldo, sightseeing in the historic old town of Puebla, Cholula and relaxing in our beautiful boutique hotel the El Sueno. They say a picture is worth a thousand word so I have included some here to give you a glimpse of our trip so far. Everyone says “hello” and sends their love and we are all looking forward to future successes on Orizaba in the coming few days.
Thanks for tuning in.
