Just two more weeks and we'll be heading home. Plans are to leave Heaven's Gate park on Saturday afternoon, March 1st and go to the big Pemex station just north of town. We'll meet up with Jeremy and Jane and leave there early Sunday morning. We'll be heading to Guadalajara and Sunday is the best day as far as traffic is concerned.
We're taking a different route home than the one we came down on. Our trip will take us from La Penita to Guadalajara and from there north on Highway 54. There's a mountain range to go through when leaving Guadalajara but we'll try to get to Zacatecas the first night. We'll stay on highway 54 to Saltillo and then around Monterry to Loredo/Columbia crossing.
But until we leave there's still time to enjoy ourselves. We're planning on a one day trip this week to Puerto Vallarta with Fred and Sherry. The pups will be boarded at the groomer for a couple of days so we don't have to worry about them.
With our time here soon coming to an end we're making sure we've bought everything we want to to take home. That includes a good supply of Mexico's great coffee to last us until we come back next year.
Coffee Store in La Penita.. Notice the exhaust pipe from the roaster.
One thing about Mexico's public bathrooms is that there's never any toilet paper. So this one place we came across had the answer to the problem.
