Driving Through Scenic Mexico

by Joy Whitehead / Apr 19, 2013 / 0 comments

My family and I recently took a drive through Mexico for a vacation in the US with some family members. While some people say it's too dangerous because of all of the drug-related events that they see on the news, my family and I have lived to tell the tale. The drug gangs are only active during the night, and they don't mess with foreigners. The locals from the towns are also very friendly and willing to give directions if needed. None of us ever felt in danger of anything or anyone while we drove to the border, and it was the easiest border crossing we've ever made!


Here are some of the pictures I took while making this 'perilous' journey across Mexico:

As you can see, we had a peaceful drive up to Texas with no stops other than tolls, food and bathrooms, and the borders. We know many people that have driven through Mexico, and some of them can't speak any Spanish. Now that you know it's safe, maybe you'll get to see some of the mountains for yourself someday!
