We started out in Puebla at 5am. By car it took us about 3 hrs to get to the LaJoya carpark, including stops to take pictures of the sunrise and Popocatépetl. We've made it up to the first knee in 3hrs and ended our tour on the second knee at about noon. All of the climb was free of ice and snow. Descending was more difficult then the ascent because clouds were moving in, but we've made it back to the car before the evening rains. A great trip, and now we're preparing ourselves to go up to Pico de Orizaba on Sunday.
