I'm leaving tomorrow on vacation to Mexico. I fly to Phoenix, then catch a tour bus to Mexico, then travel by train around Copper Canyon. It is formed by six rivers and is longer and deeper than the Grand Canyon. The train goes though 86 tunnels and across 39 bridges. Can you say scenic? Can't you already hear my camera clicking away? Snick! Snick!
There is also a rafting trip down the El Fuerte River for bird watching and some other stuff. More photo ops I hope.
I'm going with my two brothers and two sisters. We've started taking one-week vacations each January to someplace warm. Last year it was Key West FL, the Everglades and Miami. In 2008, it was Cancun, Mexico. For both of those, we were on our own -- for this one, we booked through an outfit called Caravan Tours.
I have two poker and two bridge posts scheduled ahead of time for later next week, but mostly it'll be dead in the MOJO section of the blogosphere. I'll be home Sunday, Jan. 17.
The first image is a scan of something sent by the tour company and the second I stole from their web site. See here.
