Discovery

A couple weeks ago I noticed something odd about a mountain off to the east of our town up on a mountain.  It’s probably near to 8-10 miles away so I couldn’t make it out.  It looked big.  The only thing I could think of was a new road.  How exciting!  We could use one.  That direction…into the Sierra…hmmm…maybe a new road to Pachuca or at least to Huichapan or maybe to the thermal water parks that we never seem to get around to visiting.

On the walking tour I mentioned in the previous post, I caught a glimpse of it but it’s still too far away to make out what it is.  I zoomed the camera to the max 140x digital and tried to hold it steady enough for a fairly clear picture through all the wires on the street.

Even the picture didn’t solve the mystery.  I still guessed it is a road.

Today we hosted about a dozen people for a series of meetings (not with us) and at lunch I thought to ask one of them who probably would know just what is that construction over on the mountain.

One of them did know.  Discovery…and disappointment.  Not a road.  Apparently, the mountainside was starting to slide and boulders where threatening to hit houses down below so they intentionally razed part of the mountain to minimize the threat of a worse rock slide than what they had experienced already.   Not that this is a bad thing but I sure was hoping for a new road.  Oh well.
