Snake Dance

I came to Mexico to ride my motorcycle and snake dance with Salma. You have given away my last snake dance so I guess I will just have to ride on

The DRZ is safe and sound back at Casa SR. She was right where I left her on Saturday evening.




I couldn't find a motorcycle battery on Sunday, so I bought the smallest car battery I could find. It was still pretty darn heavy in the backpack after a few kilometers! Of course, I could have pulled the battery out of the Motorcycle on Saturday and just brought it back home and charged it, and saved $700 pesos too, but that's advanced thinking. Carrying the car battery all morning definitely gave me ample opportunity to think of the cost/benefit equation of having a backup kick starter.

We weren't overly methodical about trouble shooting. We drained the carb and cleaned (not changed) the spark plug at the same time, connected the battery and it fired right up.


Hijole!, more of this!


Got her up out of that box canyon and out of the mountains. Thanks for the help Miguel and Alejandro!


Most of the land below in the foreground is the Ranch that used to belong to John Wayne, when he was making westerns in DGO.

Well Done SR! I was curious to see how this would turn out. How far were you required to travel?

Jick, it was about 6K each way with a steep incline/decline at each end. Despite carrying a car battery, it was not a bad way to spend a day. Today is a Mexican Holiday.

Thanks guys, that's all for this episode!

One last shot of a Vaquero with John Wayne's ranch again in the background.

BTW: This photo illustrates a nice example of a volcano-tectonic depression, or graben caldera. As the magma evacuated a chamber below the valley floor in the form of volcanic ash flying up into the air, the floor of the valley had less to support it and dropped down and the mountains of ash outside of the caldera accumulated.

The rounded hills located at the edge of the depression (including the one we are standing on) are resurgent domes. These popped up toward the end of the process as viscous liquid lava (not ash) came up the faults located at the edge of the depression.
