Ajijic - Stations of the Cross

sunny 31 °C

In keeping with the Easter week activities I (Nellie) decided to accept an invitation by Doug Ransom to hike the trail in the hills north of Ajijic to see the Stations of the Cross.

The 'hike' was actually a walk up a well used, dusty trail with many switchbacks. Luckily Doug had been on part of this walk prior to today or we'd probably not have found our way. There were a lot of different paths, none of them marked in any way, and we could easily have taken a wrong turn and ended up . . . nowhere, but hot and dusty.

The stations of the cross up there were interesting, decorated long ago and now deteriorating. We stopped at each of the fourteen stations, the last being a small Chapel which was really more like a shrine.

Here you see numbers 1, four and 11 . . .

Also, Doug had researched some info on the meaning of each and read aloud as we stopped along the way . . .
