Road next to a dried out creek



4/3/2024: After dipping yet again on the Oaxacan local specialties, we headed out to look again for some accessible forest. We ended up just outside town where there was a blocked off road heading into the forest. We saw some guys with bicycles and donkeys heading into the valley, and we walked in the same direction in the area of some dried out ponds.
