And this was the first cannon we found , but we were more interested in the ride that day.
I did get the farmers name that day and his cell. no.
I think we should go back and do that route up the mountain.
A week before we got there , he caught some blokes towing the cannon down the mountain with a tractor.Thats why its on the ground in the LH rear of my pic.
So Reccie team  !!!

Eventually I was able to get a good enough connection to photobucket.

Paramed had to hold on to the map to keep the ground steady.



There is a really interesting stone ruin up there.  No later than 19th century.



Wayneh and N[]va posing with the cannon and more cannon pics.










"Kanon en wapad" has a good ring to it.  Count me in.

Eeish. This ride was like a good authentic Mexican supper... As good coming up, as it was going down.  :mwink:

Awesome RR XT660R; also great pics N[]vA; and some super history Crossed-up. Paramed... Agreed - "The Cannons are a calling."

...Crossed-up, my Mrs laughed herself sick over this pic. In her words, "Typical picture of confusion... Five guys with a map."

 :imaposer:  ...Very funny, if not true.  ;)

Really only 4 guys with a map.  The fifth guy looks a bit out of it.  Maybe he was thinking about the 2 burgers he'd eaten before setting out, and he was trying to keep them down after the bumpy ride up the hill. :D

Myself and Crossed-up went to the Cannon Museum yesterday and I bought the cannon book.
Some more interesting rides in the planning now
