September 6, 2003 - Day 2, El Fuerte, Mexico

This day we took a bus from Los Mochis to El Fuerte, Mexico.  This would allow us to board the Chihuahua - Pacifico Train a few miles up from it's departure point in Los Mochis, and allow us to stay in the delightful Hotel Posada del Hidalgo and board the train the next day at a more reasonable hour rather than at 6 a.m. when it leaves Los Mochis.

We arrived at what turned out to be the side door, but it had no steps, just a very steep ramp up to the  hotel.

Casa Vieja, the section of the hotel where our room was located...beautiful!
