The Devils backbone
Riding from Durango to Mazatlan we took the famous hwy 40, otherwise known as ‘the devils backbone’. A fantastic ride though the mountain passes, with only the few occasional slow trucks, and one area of road works, to contend with. Otherwise the riding was spectacular. Coming from the high plateau of central Mexico down to the coast was a significant temperature difference. The vegetation moving from open farmland, dry cactus, and open forest to tropical jungles and banana trees. And the humidity was incredible!
So forgive me but this road is just too good not to post lots of pictures!
and we got a live cowboy show across the road!
Sadly this truck did not do so well. I don’t know what happened to the driver, but it didn’t look good…
And another significant moment …..
Alaska to Patagonia .....
