Deserted Beach at Monteon|
When Summer storms disturb the beach sand, pottery shards are uncovered. Some have ornamental black lines around the neck. When I asked the age of this pattern, I was told that it dates from pre-columbian times, but it is also still in use today.
Hidden Cove at Las Cuevas|
A great place for a picnic if you can navigate the washed-out road. You could approach from the sea if you had a boat.
Downed Trees from Hurricane|
Monteon picnic beach area.
Mountains behind Monteon|
This is the highest mountain in the surrounding area. It rises to 4000 feet and is the "rain maker" in our seldom winter rains.
Pottery Shard Beach|
Looking North, this is the area at Monteon where the pottery shards from ancient beach dwellers are found.
Puerta Vallarta's population has swollen to over a million. It is the source of supermarket items which are in limited supply locally.
