Wow! Our first day riding in Mexico, after being benched by a windstorm on Christmas was simply fantastic. We were expecting 10-20 mph crosswinds, but all the wind was way up high where the low hanging clouds were racing by just above the peaks of the surrounding mountains. The moving clouds entertained us all day long with a continuing display of shadows and sun and rain spots. It may have been chilly, we may have gotten wet, and we might even have gotten a bit of hail, but the incredible scenery and downhill riding more than made up for it. The dozens of waves from the friendly Mexican drivers were a warm welcome to the country, and the courtesy and caution of the drivers (especially the semis) catapulted them into the upper echelon of the driver quality list. The enthusiastic fist pumping we got from a semi driver as we were going over a speed bump together was simply over the top awesome. Ending the day in a $16 warm, comfortable hotel with WiFi in a cute and colorful town was icing on the cake. These pictures won’t do justice to the beauty we experienced today, but they can give a taste.
