Copper Canyon, Mexico - coppercanyonmexico

The Copper Canyon of Mexico is a mystical place which draws the traveler into its charms. Although it was years ago, I recall our first trip. Arising at daybreak or earlier, we made our way to the train station. The anticipation was incredible as we awaited departure. We began our  journey, and gazing out the window, I was somewhat disappointed... Yes!  the countryside was beautiful, but not as awe-inspiring as I had been led to believe.

Slowly the train continued to thread its way through the mountains, across the river and deeper into the canyon. The monotony of the rails seemed to lull me into a light sleep. Then, it happened... We rounded one curve and, suddenly, we arrived! This was the canyon that I had heard about! This was the Barrancas del Cobre that had been in my dreams! And for the rest of that journey and each one since, my forehead remains glued to the window and my eyes are wide as I await each new curve, each canyon, waterfall, corn field, apple orchard, small town, bridge or tunnel. 

Do you hear it? The Canyon is calling to You!

The Copper Canyon, or in Spanish Barranca del Cobre, consists of 6 major and distinct canyons. These are the Cobre, Urique, Oteros, Candamena, Chinipas and Sinforosa. The area is called the Sierra Tarahumara and is within the state of  Chihuahua, Mexico. The entire canyon system is estimated to be at least 6 times larger than the Grand Canyon. The indigenous Indians in the area are called the Tarahumara or Raramuri.
