Within the past hour, our Mexico Volcanoes expedition team reached the summit of the third highest peak in Mexico, Iztacihuatl (5230m / 17,160 ft)! They are on their way down now. Their track to the summit left the La Joyita trailhead and gained over 1310m (4,300 ft) of elevation gain over 5.67km to reach the summit in just about 8 hours. Whew!
We will have some pictures to share when they are back down. Meanwhile, here are a few shots from yesterday to enjoy.
Next up: Pico de Orizaba (5636m/18,490ft), Mexico’s highest mountain and the third highest in North America.
