On our day off last weekend Annette and I, tired of 16 hour workdays stuck behind the computer, decided to go on a little adventure. We headed toward Taxidho, a natural hot-spring in a canyon in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico. We'd been taken there 5 years ago by a neighbor who hoped the waters there would cure his diabetes-caused loss of eyesight.
The lady who took our money for this toll road said they had done a lot of "improvements" on it recently. As you can see in the photo (click for larger version) it was cut out of the side of the canyon, sinuous and sans any form of guardrail, and only slightly wider than our car. We met a van coming up on our way down, and a large truck (where was it going!?) going down on our way out... that was quite thrilling.
