Copper Canyon Railway
The Copper Canyon Railway has 36 bridges and 87 tunnels with 409 miles of track. It was opened in 1961 after many years of building it.
The railroad starts at Los Mochis, Sinaloa and goes all the way to Chihuahua city, Chihuahua. It starts at sea level and goes up to 8,000 feet. It goes into scenic canyons and towns, and cost over $90,000,000 to build because of the rough terrain.
At the top of the canyons it is a lot cooler and there are pine cones as compared to the canyon floors where there are tropical fruits.
On the train ride we played games and looked out at the scenery, while standing in between the cars. This was a pretty amazing trip.
