Lago Zirahuen- a few days at the lake!

Lago Zirahuen- a few days at the lake!

Upon suggestion from other travelers and a person that lives in Michoacan, we decided that Lago Zirahuen might be a good destination.  It has been a long time since we aired up the stand-up-paddleboard and this lake seemed like a possibility to use the board!  We...
Patzcuaro and Isla Janitzeo

Patzcuaro and Isla Janitzeo

Visiting Patzcuaro felt a little bit like camping at a farm! The place we chose to stay had a wide variety of farm animals roaming free on the large property. The location was beautiful, on a grassy hill above the city. We had sweeping lake views and big shady trees...

Tula-

When we finally left San Juan Teotihuacan, we didn’t go far. Just a short drive away is the archeological site of Tula in the town of Tula de Allende. It is often overlooked, because Teotihuacan is so popular. But we wanted to take the time to look at the Toltec...
Teotihuacan- pyramids from our past

Teotihuacan- pyramids from our past

Teotihuacan is one of those places that we visited briefly when we passed through in 2001.   Coming back this time meant spending more time in the community and at the archeological site. The RV park in the town of San Juan Teotihuacan is a comfortable place to relax...
The amazing blue waters of Grutas Tolantango

The amazing blue waters of Grutas Tolantango

  Some of the places we visit have been suggested by other travelers or by folks along the route.  But the stop at Tolantango made our list several years ago.  After seeing a story about these waters, we knew that we would need to go there when we were in the...

Media Luna-

Near the town of Rio Verde in the desert of San Luis Potosi, Mexico there is a strange phenomenon.   As you drive towards it you can feel the desert temperatures climb, and then the humidity begins to rise.  The first sign that you are getting near is a swift flowing...
In the cool mountains of Mexico

In the cool mountains of Mexico

After a great time exploring the abandoned mining area and the wonderful pueblo of Mineral de Pozos we were ready for a change.  We left the high desert and headed up into the mountains.  The Sierra Alvarez area has some great opportunities for boondocking (off grid...
Mineral de Pozos, MX

Mineral de Pozos, MX

Sometimes when we are on the road, we just have to trust our hunches.  Trusting hunches can work out well, or it can be all wrong.  Mineral de Pozos or San Pedro de las Pozos turned out to be a good hunch.  We needed a place that was temperate and calm in contrast to...
Guanajuato activities and goodbye!

Guanajuato activities and goodbye!

Guanajuato was a great city for us to spend four weeks in.   When we promised ourselves that we would be back, we had no idea that we would enjoy it so much.  In addition to our Spanish language classes at La Adelitas we always found events going on and things to fill...
Visiting a vet in Mexico

Visiting a vet in Mexico

While we were staying in Guanajuato with The Slow Dutchman, everyone began noticing that Seri was more lethargic than normal.  We attributed it to challenges with the city walking schedule- some dogs just don’t want to go walk on crowded streets.  Then she...
Guanajuato, still!

Guanajuato, still!

We have been in Guanajuato for quite some time now.  So long that we are familiar with schedules in the neighborhood and we notice when changes happen.  There have been some really fun events going on.  Here are a few highlights! There is nothing quite like a baseball...
Guanajuato- continued

Guanajuato- continued

While we are hanging out with our friends The Slow Dutchman , we will spend some time exploring the city of Guanajuato.  The four of us (and three dogs) rented a house for several weeks and enrolled in Spanish language school.  For fun, we signed up for a food tour...
We stumbled upon a music festival!

We stumbled upon a music festival!

Somewhere outside of Durango, Mexico we crossed another geographic milestone.  This is a first for the new camper rig.   Driving into Zacatecas we knew that we were in for a treat.  Narrow streets, tight curves and low hanging tree branches set the tone for a colonial...
La Ferriera- the first pyramid of the trip

La Ferriera- the first pyramid of the trip

As we left Durango we felt the burgeoning city melt away.  We were headed about 7 kilometers away to an archeological dig site known as La Ferriera.  This is located next to a small, dusty village with dirt streets.  We pulled in to the village and let the dogs run on...
A different look at Mazatlan (electrifying)

A different look at Mazatlan (electrifying)

Mazatlan is probably viewed by most people as a resort town, a tourist destination and a cruise ship stopover.  But we managed to experience Mazatlan very differently.   We arrived on a busy Sunday and quickly located a boon docking location using iOverlander.  This...
The journey begins, again.

The journey begins, again.

The journey has begun with a stop at a familiar location.  We lived in Bahia de Kino (Kino Bay) Mexico for a few years, so we love returning to say hello to old friends and scenery.   We parked at Islandia RV Park in “Old Kino” and enjoyed a few nights of...
