A short video of the unexpected ...Detour was closed! Off in the distance we could see the big yellow cranes were lifting something. Probably the beams we passed on the way in. Click here to view video in full screen.
From now on we will take the official detour past Marmol. Before the highway was so full of pot holes you couldn't miss them all.
The road has been repaved from 15libre to Marmol. Nice smooth drive.Marmoll has a population of about 560 . There are about 200 inhabited homes. All have electric, water and sanitary facilities.
Just some pictures of the town.
Since we drove around the town last, in the spring, the church has been repainted. I love it! Such a happy color.
Chicken crossing the road...
The central plaza and gazebo
More pictures of the church and the Papel Picado strung over the roads.
The homes are built with shared walls.
Lots of satellite TV dishes.
Looks like they are doing some remodeling.
The plant that closed down several years ago.
Wall surrounding the factory grounds.
A couple of neat murals.
Leaving Marmol heading home.
Highway is paved from Marmol to the 15D. For sure will go this way from now on to go to El Quelite or north. It is longer but now easier on the Jeep.
Another fun day.
