Hiking the local trails

The El Limon Cross Trail was brutal.  Located just west of San Juan Cosala, this trail was steep from beginning to end.  It is only 1.2 miles from the trailhead to the Cross.  The round trip hike took 2 1/2 hours.  The cool thing about this trail is that it also accesses the Skyline Trail.  The Skyline Trail is the trail that we want to eventually hike.  It runs east to west 18 miles.  
We saw many large cactus' on this hike.
Interesting formations of trees along the way. 
King of the Mountain aka   J. C. 
As usual, these are the spectacular views we have on almost every hike.  This is looking south.
The El Limon Cross.
This is the town of Jocotepec, which is on the western shore of Lake Chapala.
The Cross looking south across the lake.
You're probably tired of these lake views, but I can't get enough of them!
We are now in the rainy season, June, July and August.  In one month, this will look like a jungle. 
Somehow, this huge cactus toppled over.  Part of the root is in front of J. C.
