#1: The place

(visited by luis silva, Carlos Willis, Liz Silva and Lizbeth Guzmán)

13-Dec-2003 -- We were a group of 4 families (all 4wd club members from Chihuahua and Nuevo Mexico). We went to Mata Ortíz on December 13th to know the traditional pottery.

There, we decided to search the confluence point and then proceed driving south on our jeeps as near as we could (crossing the river six or seven times and four times the railroad tracks).

When no more road, we park and start climbing a rock wall; after that, we continue passing thru bushes and a wire fence until arriving at the edge of the hill with only 24 meters far away from the confluence point.

The place is deeply alone, in the middle of no-where and at 1,726 meters (5662 feet) over the sea level; there our GPS reported a 4 meters accuracy. In the photos, you can see my good friend Carlos (with a hat), my daughter Liz, my beloved wife Lizbeth, and a shot where celebrating Carlos, Liz and myself.
