Getting out more

From the Sierra Gorda de Guanajuato where I spent the last 2 days working, although it doesn’t feel like work when the setting is so beautiful.      

Headcolds and Horses

A weekend lost to a headcold gives me time to get a lot of reading done and some cleaning up of my photo library. I was going back through photos from last year, and found this inspiring shot from Guanajuato. Guess what I’m reading? Lots and lots of Game of Thrones. Actually I finished the […]

Almost a complete set

After climbing in Salamanca, Guanajuato yesterday, I think that I’m just missing one of the “local” crags – those within say an hour to an hour and a half away – before I have the complete set. The missing locale is an old crater and supposed to be nice, but we’ll have to see how […]

…getting ready for Day of the Dead, and I am excited. I rereading that and I don’t know if it sounds wrong or insensitive, but I really enjoy the art and learning about this aspect of the Mexican culture. It is going to be a couple of crazy weeks, and actually I had a great, […]

It was […]

Guanajuato, Mexico

Return from FBT

I’m back from my mostly interesting trip to Léon and Guanajuato. The highlight was definitely Guanajuato. Not only is the city just beautiful, but the mummy museum is also amazing. I’m working on editing the pictures, but here is a panorama of Guanajuato to get started. I think everyone was disappointed that no one will […]
