Chichi in Mexico 3/28/2016
We are in Mexico. This is our welcoming party in Pargue Constitucion.
Our first target is Cerro la Plasta.
It is cool but sunny.
We can see Chichi (Squaw’s Tit) across.
Still on the flat top.
John will have that cactus later for lunch.
Looks like Valley of the Moon back in US.
We see death cows and live cows here.
Over the fence.
Here is some spring.
Under the fence.
It is steep to Chichi.
Peligro alta winds. There is no electricity here.
We were there.
It is windy but we are somewhat shielded here.

Lunch is here.
John is down.
Looking back at Chichi.
Wanted to stop at this Indian archeological site but it is closed on Mondays and they would not do an exception for us.
So instead we go to El Chipo for some cerveza and generous portions of tostadas.
John ordered his cactus.
Too much food, wow.
Made it back to Tecate and while waiting we are exploring some border markers. This one is #243.
The line to the border crossing is over 2km long. It took us 2:15 to get back to US.
That is like to drive from SD to Gorgonio trailhead. But overall the trip was great.
