Colhuacan Peninsula

Geography

A hilly peninsula, contrasting sharply with grassy Coyoacan across the Mere, that is known as the last place of refuge on the warm side of the Bad Step for the Plain Toiks during the Shadow Binds. Though they would not survive as a people, toik blood managed to continue on by intermixing with former exiles from its sister peninsular.   The hill ridge that sits a fifth of the peninsula and snuggles against the shores bordering Mixed Lake on its south and Lake Lightning at its tip. The hill chain altogether is often compared to an ocean's wave due to the twisters blowing from the breezeway and depositing piles of sand at the chain eastern foot which gives it a smooth appearance. The western side is lumpy in comparison and convexes against the homes on its slopes.

Tourism

Calixtlahuaca Campa

The peninsula is home to only two calpōlli: Coyo and Atoyac.   Together, they form the Calixtlahuaca Campa which is administered from Coyo due to its more fertile soil. And as a result, the great majority of the inhabitants live on the lakeward facing side for easy access to the lakes. Atoyac is a region of inhabited caves within the chain of wave-like hills to avoid the dust devils and as defense against Wargs. Population growth is restricted to this landscape feature for fear of bandits and raiders across the desert.
