Posted by on Oct 13, 2017 in blog, Featured, Mexico, Travel | 0 comments

We lost an hour when we crossed the state line into Sinaloa so we arrived in Los Mochis around 9pm. We had been told to go to the jetty in Topolobampo, 30 minutes outside of the town center, and our Airbnb host would meet us there. As we approached the sea, traffic started to get crazy.

Posted by on Jul 28, 2017 in blog, Hiking Adventures | 1 comment

Awhile back, someone told us about abandoned gold mines and huge quartz crystals near Radio Tower Road, in Pinos Altos. Having only our Honda Fit at the time, we parked at the bottom, where it met Highway 15, and walked in really far. The road just kept going and going! During that visit, we came across one pile of mine tailings, collected some neat specimens and trekked back. Yesterday, we tried again....this time with the Rav4.
