A reverse angel showing El Sarcofago(the tomb) at about 1,000ft above us in the back drop. Just to the left is a draw then the rise up the De Jampa Glacier to Orizaba's summit just out of view to the lefty.
Me at 15,000ft moving last bit of things up towards HC. The climber behind is from Scotland and was reconnoitering his route to the Lava Flow just past HC.
All this bad air here in the Jar with the lid on tightly has had me thinking about the places I have been where the landscape is above the atmospheric haze. Central Mexico, in the southern state of Puebla is one of those places. The above images were taken by Alan Picard on my third and last trip to this fantastic place on earth. Even though the land we were moving on is so high up that O2 is depleted and the body must acclimatize starting down low a few days before at 10,500 in the evergreen tree line there was no ozone code anything.
