After a successful summit on Ixta, the team “beat feet” off that mountain, jumped into the vehicles and headed straight to the colonial city of Puebla. It’s a big city at over 2 million but has a much smaller feel. We stay right off the zocalo, the town square. Hotel check in, showers, clean clothes and then it was pizza outside at Vittorio’s, right alongside the zocalo. A nightcap and bed followed shortly thereafter.
Heading for the village of Tlachichuca with lunch there and then the infamous 4-wheel drive up to the Piedra Grande hut at around 14,000 ft. Summit #2 tomorrow morning.
