hiking, climbing in Charco del Ingenio

Not far from our house there is a botanical garden, called Charco del Ingenio.  It is preserved land for hiking, full moon festivals, picnicking, etc.  The top area is very desert like - many cactus, grasses, lizards, etc.  Through the middle is a gorge with a stream and some ponds.  It is full of large boulders and the kids love climbing down in there.  Tom has brought the climbing gear in a few times and set up some short routes for rock climbing too.  Below are some pictures from a couple of our recent treks.

Alya caught a fish who appeared to be stuck in this little pond.  She set it free in the stream of course.
