Barranca de Oblatos Canyon, Guadalajara, Mexico in Photos



Sometimes you just need to step outside of the city, away from construction, bustle and noise. Nature is my cure all for everything and the thing I seek out most. I’ll hike, climb and walk just about anything.

Not far from Guadalajara’s busy center is respite at theĀ Barranca de Oblatos. It’s an easy day trip. We made our way down tight, stone-path switchbacks and meandered off trail on the way back. There is little chance of getting lost so the diversion makes for a safe mini adventure. It’s a steep but short, fun climb around unexpected beauty so close yet so far from city life.
