wow, thanks for posting those butt puckering moments!  I love living vicariously through you Homero in your excursions in Mexico.  One day I hope to do it with you!  Keep 'em coming, Hermano!

On our way back,we were laughing,joking on many things and basically settling in from all the places and elevations we had been.

 Aurelio stopped us at this place to admire it and he said locals call it La Troza de Elvira,a nice place where i was up there once admiring the view down at the time,it was nice to reflect on this spot.I think we stood there for a good 20 minutes, in silence...maybe we were all thanking God, in our own way for this spectacular opportunity.

Or perhaps I should say: La Troza de Elvira

A little late on posting to this thread but I read the whole report today.  Thanks so much for posting.  I have always wondered about life across the river.  Now I have a better appreciation for it.

Wonderful photos and information. :eusa_clap:

Homero, that truck picture was great.  What a shine!  Obviously at the start of the trip.  What happened?

 Thing is Al, since our beloved administrator is fixing the NEW look on our webpage, and we have downed the "preview" button i was doing a test to see how i was going to post the pics here. Now back to our movie.... :icon_biggrin:

 Friday November 7 came, i could not catch any sleep the prior night and was layed flat on my bed , but with ny eyes open. To many things were going 100 mph in my head, too many issues i was reviewing one and two times to made sure nothing was left back, or left out for this trip. I could not wait for morning to come...i guess i was not alone, for later in the trip everyone was saying they had not slept the night before....we were just to eager to get this going.

Here's a GREAT thread for those like me who need help to pass the summer doldrums.

Just found this post...all I can say is WOW. I would love to see the other side of the river and experience the culture.
