We love being outdoors. There is something about nature that is calming and enlightening at the same time. When I am stressed out and need a break, a breath of fresh air always seems to help. I think God made it this way on purpose. It’s a natural healing effect of being outdoors.
Our current city in Mexico, Uruapan, is surrounded by beautiful green mountains. Since we moved here I have being listening to them call my name. Good friends of ours, who have recently returned to the States, invited us on a hiking trip to the top of one of Uruapan’s surrounding mountains. On the very tip of this mountain there is a little white church. Whenever you drive through the city you can see the little church on the mountain to the Southwest.
The climb took us about two hours. We did not bring the boys because we thought it would be too much for them and we wanted to spend time with our daughters. It was a beautiful day in Mexico and we were rewarded with magnificent views when we reached the summit. Enjoy the photos :-) Signing off, Tina[bctt tweet=”Hiking in #Mexico #naturephotography”]
Leaving Uruapan behind
There was evidence of caving. Wish we were equipped to explore!
T-Rex loved the hike too!
Our family minus the boys.
A fuzzy seed pod for hands-on science!
Can you see the moon?
Don’t worry. They were safe ;-)
I had to prove my skills too!
You wouldn’t want to fall into this bush!
That little church is the summit of our mountain hike. Wow!
