This one is pretty gnarly. The planes have to corkscrew up a few times to get enough altitude to get up and out of this barranca. About 10 years ago a Twin Otter crashed here. Very tragic.

Another very hairy one is just south here at Tayotita in the Piaxtla River Valley. It even has its own corrido!

Imagine! The thrill of a group ride on the Mex #180!

I think I'll park by a certain bridge and post the results on YouTube.
Ask AndyC from Corpus with the Guzzi about that one.
