Sitting, Waiting, Wishing - to Climb Orizaba

I took this picture two days before my climb of el Pico de Orizaba. It was a very enjoyable day on which I went on an acclimitizing hike on El Cerro with some friends from Ohio that I had met at Senor Reyes' home.

El Pico de Orizaba's presence is very prominent over the town of Tlachichuca. I repeatedly looked at it, wondering how I would fare on my way to the summit. In the end, all turned out well. I had paid my acclimating dues on Iztaccihuatl and consequently I felt relatively good on Orizaba.
