Creel and Copper Canyon/Barrancas del Cobre

For Christmas and New Years 1998-1999 we toured the Copper Canyon area. We took a bus from the Texas/Mexico border to Chihuahua, then took the Copper Canyon train down to Creel. We spent a week or so just hiking, swimming in hot springs, being driven around the area to see the views and eating great authentic Mexican food, beer and tequila. This area is unbelieveably beautiful and is often compared to the Grand Canyon but it is not comparable - it is actually 6 massive gorges and spans a much larger area: 25,000 miles. I would say it is considerably more spectacular than the Grand Canyon.
