Copper Canyon Mexico

Copper Canyon Mexico
This report is going to be a quickie as I am behind on Ride Reporting. This will be just highlights & best pics. There is so much detail especially when it comes to going into Mexico but just not enough time to tell. It is certainly very different down there & many times I really felt like WOW "I am really out there!" especially the fact I was riding on my own. I never felt unsafe or threatened at any time and for the most part all the people I met were wonderful. The trip was unfortunately too short as I was only in Mexico for a total of 6 days.
First order of business on the trip was bike maintenance as Suzi got beat up pretty bad in Baja. This is at my storage in Vegas. Which was my storage & Fly hub. Start & finish point.

Well this is fast forward right to the Copper Canyon, some amazing twisty roads to get to Creel where I was staying.
This rock would rock back & forth so Rockin Rollin had to go out & try it. Fun!

Stayed at the Hostel in Creel.

Parked the Bike in the Kitchen.

This Girl is Laurence. I was fortunate she was on the tour I took & was the only person Who could speak both Enlish & Spanish so she was my interpreter.
Interestingly she is actually French from France & now lives in Mexico, running an adventure compny that provides spanish lessons while people come out for
various adventures. We had no sooner come back from the Copper canyon & she went back out on an atv adventure.
Hi Laurence.

The Hostel (Not Hostile) greeters!

This area is the area of the Tarahumara Indians. They sell their crafts to tourists. I had brought along a bunch of stuffed toys to give away to the young children. They would have to accompany the mother. This young girl was such a happy thing & was dancing around. She was thrilled to get the little toy.
They wear very bright colourful clothing.

Tomorrow I ride to Batopilas.
Rock on,
