Copper Canyon

The Train to Copper Canyon and Back
This will be what we will remember the most from our Mexican adventure!
We abandoned our RV for a couple of days and went on a train adventure to Creel, Chihuahua !
What a ride it was! Breathtaking and exciting, we stayed glued to the train’s window to enjoy the scenery!
From sea level to 8,600 feet, we had our money’s worth!
Everything changed. The vegetation went from saguaro cactuses to pine trees, the climate became subfreezing, the population was no longer Mexican but Indian!
Of course, the Copper canyon view was fantastic, but we still think the Arizona Grand Canyon is more amazing!
We traveled 15 hours in a very comfortable train with great people!
The train track took 63 years to build compared to 5 years for the Transiberian………!
