Mexico and the Ojuela Mine Pictures - PART TWO

I realize I've made a big deal of the THING I found so fascinating in Ojuela, and have now started to worry that perhaps you'll find my pics a bit ho-hum! Perhaps I've been too passionate and melodramatic about this THING, but I can't help even finding an ant hill amazing.

Whenever I take off at a whim, as I did last week, I much prefer doing things like that alone, because I don't have to compromise with anyone about where to go, or how long to stay. This long drive into the northern section of Mexico gave me the much needed solitude I sometimes crave. As I continued driving through the middle of nowhere, there were times I'd screamed at the top of my lungs all my frustrations that had accumulated due to my being part of the never-ending rat race. Thanks to this trip, I now feel as fresh as a kosher pickle! :o) If reincarnation exists, and I sometimes believe it does, I want to come back as an eagle. Come to think of it, perhaps I was some kind of bird (turkey maybe? heh heh), since I have never eaten anything with feathers! :o)

In solitude the mind gains strength
and learns to lean upon itself.
- Laurence Sterne

So, what was that THING that man from Juarez, Mexico had told me about? It was a petrified mule mummy that was deep within the mountain!! This mule had died in the cave almost 300 years ago, but was mummified because of the dark and cool conditions inside the cave. You just can't imagine how excited I was that I finally got to see it.
