... scale of this place justice. The guide says they had to move all the building materials onto the central mountain by cargo helicopter, it's a real achievement. I've decided I want an extra day at the coast so I'm heading east to Los Mochis this afternoon on el train. I'm not expecting wifi for a while, it's only .3 Megs here and I'm the only one using ...

We only saw one other vehicle (the man was changing a tire), and a bicyclist! A big international bicycle race had just been run, in the canyon, called 'The Route of Adventure'. The 100 km route was a real challenge for all participants on this rough road, with variations in altitude from 100 to 500 meters with a final descent of 1500 meters ending in Batopilas. We saw markers for the race all along the road.
