After climbing Mexico’s 6th highest peak, La Malinche, we set our sights even higher. As we continued heading north we couldn’t help but be drawn to the two volcanoes named Izta and Popo towering over 17,000 feet elevation. Come along with us and watch the video below as we reach new heights on our hike up the 17,160 foot tall Iztaccihuatl, Mexico’s 3rd highest peak!
One year ago, at the 2nd annual üCamp rally in Ohio, we announced the beginning of an amazing journey! Our goal was to take our T@B Boondock trailer (named Rocky) made by nüCamp from the northernmost point you can drive in continental North America, Prudhoe Bay Alaska, all the way to the southernmost point in Mexico at the Guatemala border!
As you know, we recently completed our Alaska to Mexico adventure. During that time we were pretty darn good about releasing weekly video updates! What you don’t know, is that our journey returning to the US led to some of the best adventures and most beautiful sites of the whole trip! Don’t worry, we’ll still share them with you. Better late than never, right!?
Now for Part 2! We covered a lot of miles in this episode. In addition to the beautiful scenery, I tried to include some practical backpacking tips of day to day hiking. Thanks to the wonderful invention of video editing I’m able to keep the video moving pretty quickly – so if you want more details on any of the items I mention, just keep reading and I’ll include links!
