Mexico in Pictures: Huentitan Canyon

Huentitan Canyon is located in the Guadalajara Metropolitan area.  The Rio Grande de Santiago (Mexico’s second largest river) runs through the bottom of the canyon. Climbing down to the bottom is quite the workout (don’t be fooled by the pictures, they don’t do the hill’s angle any justice). As someone who is a little obsessed with fresh bodies of water, I couldn’t wait to get to the bottom for a close view of the river. Sadly, during our climb down this weekend, we decided to take a bit of detour along the way thinking it’d be faster, and ended up in private property at the bottom of the canyon. Unable to get to the river itself.

Enjoy the (distant) views of the river and canyon.

Deceptively Steep Tracks to Bottom of Canyon (60 degrees…I can prove it upon request!!)
