The Copper Canyon Trail is an immense 15 hour train journey from Los Mochis through to Chihuahua, the route is 418 miles long and takes in 37 bridges and 86 tunnels and reaches nearly 8000 feet above sea level. The route crosses the 'Mexican Grand Canyon' which is much larger than it's American counterpart but does not have the same vantage points which makes the Grand Canyon so popular and well known.

I barely slept at all that night. I wrote an account of what happened while it was fresh in my mind, and re-organised my bag ...
... DoriNachos. It was all very good.
As soon as we were done eating, we went for dinner. I was pretty full already, but that has never stopped the folks I'm with from ordering us tons of food. Again, we had a girl come to our table and make salsa from scratch right in front of us. We got queso fundido, which I had recently found out was a mostly northern Mexican dish. I got crepes as well. I didn't finish it all, but I was so stuffed.
