Benito Juarez

2Some of the mountains and valleys all around the village of Benito Juarez.

4There are lots of donkeys in this small, rustic village; some actually working, and some just standing around, modeling for my pictures. :)
5The lookout point is usually very moist since it's in the clouds so much. This cool, wet environment makes a great place for moss, flowers, and other plants to grow.
6Two fiery red flowers looking guard over the valley.
7A lonely field near the top of the mountain, inhabited only by a few sheep.
8Looking back on Benito Juarez from the lookout you can see how small it really is.
9A small group of houses a short walk from the main part of the village. If you're there at the right time of year all the roofs are covered with different colored ears of corn drying in the sun.
10A nice grouping of daisies and cactus.
11At the turn-off from the main, paved road to the dirt road leading to Benito Juarez, a field of blue flowers dotted with some red flowers overlooks a big valley.

12The dirt road that leads most of the way up to the lookout; once you get close to the lookout you have to hike the last few minutes up a steep path to the top of a rocky cliff.
13A tall red flower on the way up to the lookout.
