Ok, im going to ask you not to scroll down just yet!!!!!!







I remember an e-mail that my dad received that showed some "redneck car designs" and they just cracked me up (some examples: a motorcycle tied to a lawnmower so he could have one of those drivable lawn mowers, or the guy that put the large bull horns on front of his car...) Well, i found one this week that should be added to that list...
















Yes, thats a hairbrush...

So as my comp and I were heading to an appointment, we found a small little canyon.  So we headed up and found an amazing 20 foot waterfall (well, it would be a 20 foot waterfall, but there was no water at the time.)

Getting tubed in El Ajusco

So the day before changes we had a huge BBQ, we cooked up 5 Kilos of meat, and played a ton of soccer. It was a blast.

So last monday we had a huge trip! We decided to tackle the highest peak in the City of Mexico, the Pico de Aguila. It stands at a little over 13000 ft.




Here´s elder Morales, looking at the peak that we are about to tackle.

the first half was very heavily wooded, and the air was soooooo fresh!!!!

Here you have a better view of the peak. We rolled a few boulders off the top, and they would end up a little below where the picture ends.

Once we had made it to the tree line, we decided to stop and had breakfast. We had Longanisa, onions, Jalepeno chiles, steak, chicken and homemade tortillas! It was delicious!!!!


Once we had finished breakfast, the clouds moved in, and it became foggy, wet and cold.






video





So after 3 more hours of hiking, we finally reach the peak!!



There´s nothing for about 1000 ft. below my feet!
