Pico de Orizaba

Here’s a shot of the snow covered peak of Pico de Orizaba peaking through the clouds that I shot from the Parque Juarez. This is the highest peak in Mexico and the third highest in North America, or so I read.

It is a dormant volcano, not extinct, that last erupted in 1687 and erupted fairly often during the 15 and 1600s, or so I read.

If you want to read more about the mountain this web site has a well documented summary of info.
