The perfect mountain crossing from the dry central climat to the humid
pacific climate zone.
This about 180 Km stretch from Durango to Mazatlan is just the best.
the road is turning and turning and.... guess turning its way up the sierra
mountains with just perfect views (and good spots for overnight Westy camping, towards Mazatlan side).
As soon as you reach the Top, you feel it. Humid, warm, wet, tropical.
Yap, you are on the other side, decending the same way.
Those turns are really sharp. Beware of trucks that take that route as well.
they usually take up the whole road in turns. (naturally).
