Malinalco Archaeological Zone Gallery Part 2

These are photographs taken on a trip to Malinalco which is a town that dates back to pre-colonial/conquest times. I really enjoyed the trip there and Malinalco would be a great place to retire with its beautiful mountains and clean streets.

These photographs can be bought as prints with frames or prints alone. A wide variety of paper and frames is available.

This path is very steep and you can see the signs that tell you to go no higher. There are rubber mats to help keep you from falling. You can fallow the view of the stone steps to the peak in other photos in this gallery!

A middle aged woman and an elderly woman who is her mother slowly go up to the first landing. It isn't easy because they are steep and narrow. I had trouble getting down from there (getting up isn't that hard for someone who is young). This view centers on them and their determination.

A middle aged woman and an elderly woman who is her mother were going up to the first landing as permitted. I was so afraid that they'd fall, but they went up slowly. Admire her mother's determination.

This is the last part of the stone steps leading to the peak from the ruins. We aren't allowed to go that high.
