Volcan Paricutin

From Las Cabañas and Angahuan - Michoacan

Since we were in the area, had not all seen it and I had no pictures of Angahuan - we made the drive. A few fotos are from a previous trip just to fill in. This was our first stop up from Uruapan and at 10am no tourists had arrived so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. We got the usual sales pitch to ride horses to the church but weren't interested. I felt sorry for the guys that follow you from the entrance of town to Las Cabanas - but what can you do. They don't take NO for an answer.

Patzcuaro is the ex-capital of Michoacan and before that was Tzintzuntzan, a small town nearby dating to the Purhépecha empire in the 1300's. The museum in Patzcuaro is finding ruins in it's back yard that predates history and they are believed to be earlier than the history of Tzintzuntzan. The Purhépecha were one of the indigenous tribes that were not conquered by the Aztecs
