San Juan Parangaricutiro & Patzcaurro February 15 & 16, 2016

Kevin (wagon master) Larry, Paul, John and Janice took a sightseeing side trip to a church that was half buried by a volcanic eruption in 1943. The village population of 3000 was evacuated and no one was hurt because of slow moving lava flow. Later in the day we visited a natural hot springs park and waterfalls in the city of Uruapan. More spectacular scenery and lots of steps!
