Barefoot is the traditional way to walk the side of this mountain. On knees too. On the Mexican side, vendors climb with cooler chests filled with sweets and refreshments to sell. The path on the American side extends at an easy incline, back and forth. If you go it alone, its said to be dangerous. Border Patrol agents stand at a distance. Its just a twenty minute climb. At the top, you can look out to see a hazy mist lying on the dirt and two sparse cities sprawled. There is no water in the river. This mountain formed like Jiffy Pop and dinosaurs have left their prints. Now, the Catholics use it to watch a matachine dance.
