Two of my four-legged guides on La Malinche
Upon arriving at I.M.S.S., I began talking to people to confirm that I knew where the trailhead was, etc. for the next morning. I got all the advice I would need for the next day, however, I was also told not to worry because the dogs will lead you up the mountain! Sure enough, eight dogs joined me at the start of the day! Six of them stuck it out and accompanied me for the full day - except for the final stretch to the summit, where the boulder field blocked their way. But they waited for me and slept in the shade until I got back!

Great photo and caption to go along with it. I can't wait to climb this one and hopefully I am lucky enough to get their company as well.

Thanks Gabem! La Malinche was a great way to start my trip to Mexico. It's a beautiful mountain and I also had a great time the day before just hanging out in the park and acclimitizing a bit. You probably will see a few of the same dogs I did and possibly some offspring of theirs following in a proud mountain guide tradition! Best of luck with your plans. Cheers
