ANCON Waterfall Ride - MEXICO!

We just returned from a short ride to the Nuevo Leon Mountains, to visit again the area around Rayones (very close to Galeana).

from my tent door I could see this view





and we missed this from a local Quad event......

We left Reynosa around 3pm and expecting to get with daylight to the camping spot we already knew,
The sun is seting down and we just got to Rayones, still some 15 miles of dirt part to get there, so it would be hard to make it before dark. And on top of that the gas station just did closed so we needed to return next day to fill the mules.

here getting to Rayones






And so it was like 2 years ago the last time we went there, was kinda hard to find the place in the total darkness.. despite the directions provided by the locals, we did wrong turns about three times, but at last we found it and started placing the tents. We were starving and wanted to start our Classic Grilling Time!!!









myself making sure this guys armed the tents in the correct way..!!!

gopro pics (Efrain)






then after opur delicious breakfast, we starting climbing to reach the spot were the Ancon waterfall borns,




la ventana mountain (the window)








this time, the water was low, the rainy season was very poor last year, but still running enough to keep all green and supplying the village

























I had to lift this masive log in order allow a pass to my fellow riders....





Efrain emerging from the underground

Food was really incredible, I do not know what is it, but scramble eggs, coffee, tortillas, frijoles, etc, tastes so better then other places, is magical, is surreal.

weather was hot, so cold water was calling us....



after wonder around the several ponds of the river, we rode to the town for gas and food. there was a Quad event passing by there, so they asked us to pose for their magazine and also about some tips for riding on the area... hehehe
