Snorkel the Sea of Cortez. Ride the rails in the Copper Canyon
Exploring the Sea of Cortez and the Copper Canyon in Mexico left and indelible impression on me. During my stay I did some snorkeling in a marine preserve near La Paz on the Baja California. The water is crystal clear and warm and the only company we had were some very inquisitive pelicans. They have the longest noses (beaks)
Gray Whales migrate to these waters from the Arctic Circle during the winter months to give birth to their calves in the lagoons of the southern Baja. Whale watching expeditions are available during the winter months and these fully inclusive kayaking/camping trips would surely be an unforgettable experience.
Then we boarded the Chihuahua al Pacifico Railroad in the coastal town of Los Mochis and embarked on one of the most dramatic railway journeys I’ve ever experienced.
During the 7 hour trip the train winds its way over 37 trestle bridges and through more than 80 tunnels, climbing 7500 feet into the Copper Canyon. This rugged ‘Land of the Sierra Madre’ rivals the grandeur of the Grand Canyon and is a great destination for those who love the unusual.
