Here are the remainder of my photos from our visit to El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel de Allende. It was so incredible to see everything in a natural setting. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend a visit! It is wonderful!
Above is a photo of the Dam of the Reservoir. The following are photos of the area near the dam.
This is a Furcrea. These are not cold hardy in our area but make great container specimens.
I love lichen grows on the rocks- the vibrant colors amaze me.
Above is a view into the canyon. The view in person is stunning.
This is a little area they have called the Plaza of the Four Winds which have several Pre-Columbian symbols which are beautiful.
There is lavender everywhere- they have a beautiful display of it in the Plaza- you can see it and smell it all over town as well- it thrives in the dry climate there.
The Watermill Ruins (shown above) are remarkably in good shape considering their age.
This concludes my "tour" of our visit. I hope you enjoyed the photos- several of you have written me directly with questions- please feel free to do so- we had an incredible time and am happy to share experiences, give suggestions on the town etc… It was truly amazing.
