View Mexico (Mainland II) on divatmotoros's travel map.

The Malinche is another volcano nearby Puebla, a bit to the North-West to the city. We heard the news that the first snowfall of the season happened so we decided to go and see the snow.

We had to buy new boots to the kids as they outgrew their previous pairs, but you can get anything and everything at the local market. Mission completed in the morning, then a 1,5 hours drive to cover about 50 kms (you can guess from the average speed it was a slow drive) let us arrive to the parking lot. We started our walk in a very nice pine forest.


The walk from there was uphill and we did not reached the snowy part, after about 3 kms we were exhausted and turned back. Even the smallest (2yr old) did climb almost all the way alone so we were quite proud of him. Not surprisingly in the dense forest, far away from anything there was a couple selling sweets and chilly-pops.


Arriving home we recharged with Domino's Pizza, a rare treat just next doors to our campsite in Cholula.
