There is a place that is as exotic as the far east, as safe as your back yard, as beautiful as Tahoe and which offers an incredible food culture, and it’s just south of the border: Mexico’s Oaxaca City and the Sierra Norte. Crooked Trails Mexico Director Robin Anderson will share slides and stories about our often misunderstood and under estimated neighbor, Mexico. Robin has lived and worked in Oaxaca off and on for over 15 years and will share stories of community-based trekking routes in the Sierra Norte through forests full of pine, madrone, oak and the largest display of wildflowers you will find anywhere, staying in kind, hospitable local communities. In addition, the food and drink of Oaxaca are beyond amazing –think mole and mezcal. Discover how to have a journey full of adventure and flavor at a fraction of the cost for other international trips.
