The main view of the copper canyon

The of course, we went to the majestic Copper Canyon. The Copper Canyon consists in  a system of several large canyons and is five times larger than the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Plus it's all green and beautiful. They have installed now the largest cable car in the world, so you can literally fly over the canyon. I still haven't seen that but it must be crazy.

We could also see the Chepe, the train Chihuahua to the Pacific, which is the only train ride left in Mexico. People says it's totally worth it because of the views. I bet.

Of course we couldn't leave the Canyon without eating some wonderful Chihuahuan food. There's a large lunch area with anything you want from burritos, tortas, etc., the usual Mexican snack, but served with Chihuahua cheese, whichs is what makes the experience all so much better.

I was reading about it and it's not the largest, but it is the tallest... it's about 3.4 miles long, that makes it the third largest in the world, and it's almost a mile in height.

There's a short video of the cable car here:
