A Mystical Land of Intense Natural Beauty History, Wonder and Culture
...This is the Trip that You have Meaning to Make for Years!
The Copper Canyon of Mexico is a mystical place which draws the traveler into its charms. Although it was years ago, I recall our first trip. Arising at daybreak or earlier, we made our way to the train station. The anticipation was incredible as we awaited departure. We began our journey, and gazing out the window, I was somewhat disappointed... Yes! The countryside was beautiful, but not quite as awe-inspiring as I had been led to believe.
Slowly the train continued to thread its way through the mountains, across the river and deeper into the canyon.
The monotony of the rails seemed to lull me into a light sleep. Then, it happened...
We rounded one curve and, suddenly, we arrived! This was the canyon that I had heard about!
This was the Barrancas del Cobre that had been in my dreams!
And for the rest of that journey and each one since, my forehead remains glued to the window
and my eyes are wide as I await each new curve, each canyon, waterfall,
corn field, apple orchard, small town, smiling child, bridge or tunnel.
The Copper Canyon, or in Spanish Barranca del Cobre, consists of 6 major and distinct canyons.
These are the Cobre, Urique, Oteros, Candamena, Chinipas and Sinforosa.
The area is called the Sierra Tarahumara and is within the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.
The entire canyon system is estimated to be at least 6 times larger than the Grand Canyon.
The indigenous Indians in the area are called the Tarahumara or Raramuri.
Sea Debris Designs by Naomi Black
"Hand-picked Debris Collected from the Edge of the Sea"
SeaDebris is my word for the "Gobbledegook" that I have found on the Edge of the Sea while beach-combing along the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.
Some SeaDebris is formed from nature: seashells, coral, driftwood or possibly a piece of volcanic rock.
And, other SeaDebris has been left behind by man, only to be rock 'n' rolled in the sea until it comes to rest again on land: Seaglass and other Rusty & Weathered items of Curiosity.
I enjoy walking the beach. Searching for the unique and the common, the new and the old, the salty and crusty.
Never tiring of the discovery of SeaDebris along the Sea Shores of Old Mexico.
