Our goal.
Perhaps our over-riding goal, is to always be in T-shirt and short pants weather. Lately we have had to tweek this goal a bit to include being out of the high humidity & heat that we found in the Yucatan Peninsula!

As MsTioga has made her way into the Sierra Madre range, we found lots of rain here. We are on the eastern side of the continental divide. The wet weather of the Gulf of Mexico backs up against the Sierra Madre.

The challenge.
We have made a Camp here in the City of Mendoza to consider where to head now. If we were to head toward Puebla, MsTioga would ascend from 4,390 feet to 7,000 feet. Is there a better way for us to go?

And, would we find drier weather on the western side of the continental divide?
