The Paso de CortÃ©s is the mountain pass or saddle between the PopocatÃ©petl and IxtaccÃhuatl volcanoes in central MÃ©xico. It thus forms part of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, and is a place where the normally southeast-tending continental divide heads north for over 10 miles. The altitude of the pass is about 3400 m. (11,150 ft.)
I shot this one in my mountain trip to Iztaccihuatl, the third highest mountain in Mexico (17,159 ft). It was shot in "la Joya" a campground near "Paso de Cortes"
