More Maps

This map shows the low road (in red) near the mine. The profiles compare the low road with the high road that Bob and I took.



The low road.



The high road.




The map below illustrates how roads change in Mexico. The blue lines are my garmin map and show where the roads went the last time I came this way.

The holes are still in the walls near your campsite.

Worse yet, unbeknownst to us, many of us left town with powdered Cheezy Puffs in our luggage.

[QUOTE=rickcorwn;15624422] there was a new dike that you could drive across and the water there was only about an inch deep.QUOTE]

That will make it much less anxious about whether or not we can cross the river. There have been years it took three of us on each motorcyle to get them across, the water was hip deep. We had to lift the rear of the bike in the center of the river to keep the water out of the airbox and muffler.

Oh, you can buff that right out!

Paul, this crossing is of the Batopilas river above Batopilas. You turn and cross near the sign for the airport, as if you are going to Cerro Colorado.

The crossing you are speaking of now has a BRIDGE. I think we should still cross the old way though, don't you?

The maps appear to be Garmin Topo maps for Mexico, but I can not find them on Garmins web site. Where did you get these GPS maps?

The topo maps are E32 maps http://www.cartografiagps.com/mape32/

They come as a download and only work with one GPS.

You can save some bucks if you buy from this site. http://cartografiagps.com/paginas/tienda_cartografia_gps_mexico.htm

Just had an hour to kill and was able to do so most enjoyably with your fabulous ride report! Every word and pic most appreciated! I'm crossing my fingers that everything works out wonderfully for the Mexican girl to get all the help she and her family need. What a blessing that would be to them and I'm sure word of the Norteno Americano's generousity will spread thru the area. Keep it comin', fellas!

+1, I told my coworker about this part of the story today. The girl's life is so significant and memorable.

Everything else is just old white guys falling over, breaking down and getting flat tires.....
