My final Mazatlan Post

I forgot I had these pictures sitting in my camera. These round out my trip to Mazatlan. Enjoy.

Cort & I took a boat out to Deer Island to do some exploring and possibly escape the kids. After landing on the East shore beach, we headed South along the coast. Lots of these cook trees sticking out from the cliff face.

It was in one of these many tide pools,

that I finally got the chance to photograph my first puffer fish not in captivity. (and not dead, washed up on the beach)

On our way to Wolf Island

A shallow cave on the west side with fresh water dripping in.

I spotted a large cement box on top of a hill which we climbed up to. Some rocks at the bottom caught my attention, and buried underneath them, I discovered this not in a bottle from 2004. Here is the photographic evidence as proof. I returned the note where I found it, (from a dad to his children, who I assume will track it down at some later date) minus the 50 pesos going to waste at the bottom of a pile of rocks.

Ever since this occurrence, I've had an overwhelming desire to get a handheld GPS device and participate in geocaching.

Cort decided to take the challenging way down

One of my favorite photos from the trip. This was taken on New Year's Eve. It's my version of the 'Family Photo'. A candid shot of how families really are - nothing staged.

So I am jealous of your trip to Mexico. Looks like a lot of fun with friends. Of course prepping and painting kitchen cabinets over Christmas break sure was a blast, so I guess I am not too jealous.

Hello, from someone else who wishes they were in Mexico instead of Lehi. Great pictures.
