We had to keep our jackets on in the breeze as we gained altitude coming out of Chihuahua on CHEPE last week.
My wife and I were on the Copper Canyon train last week as we travelled lining out some improvements to our Copper Canyon tours.
The best spot on the Copper Canyoon train is in the dining car having coffee as you wander up into Copper Canyon.
It was one of those lovely crisp Chihuahua mornings as we pulled out of Chihuahua City on CHEPE. The sun peaked up from the east as we ambled up through the plateaus toward Cuauhtemoc and La Junta. Usually the vast Mennonite apple areas are starting to show some pre-flowering in March, but this year is a little late. The smudge pots were at the ready and plenty of wood scraps were piled every where.
The apple orchards in the high plateaus below Copper Canyon are almost the size of the ones in Washington state.
One of the features of the ranch country in Chihuahua is the old rock fences–ancient–and they reaally show on the morning light.
Rock walls make their way up and downthe low ranch ins west of Chihuahua City.
