La Quemada

Near Zacatecas is la Quemeda, the ruins of a Mesoamerican village. It's not as impressive as Teotihuacan, but it's still a nice place to visit. The ruins are built into a hill.

A closer look

A small pyramid.

On the way back we got hit by a torrential down pore that caused a little flash flood. It was a little scary since we were surrounded by fields with no high ground to evacuate to. What appeared to be giant cakes of salt were floating by our van.
