*New Copper Canyon Adventure Park: Copper Canyon has a new adventure park which sports the longest single line and second longest zip line course in the world and the third longest  cable car ride  in the world (6 km).   For those who like speed and adventure, one can fly across the canyon system on a seven jump, eleven platform zip line course which extends over 4 miles through the canyon. “ Flying” at over 2300 ft. above the canyon floor and walking across the two suspension bridges allows a dramatic view of the canyon floor which you do not experience from hiking or even from a helicopter. The zip liners will return at the end of their course on the cable car.

THE “GRINGO” AND THE LITTLE DOG” –  When I went to the village of Creel to sell my bear grass baskets I saw an old White Man being pulled by a little dog around the square.  At first I counted how many circles it pulled the old man around and then I finally lost count.  People said a “Gringo” was driving the little dog-and that he even spoke to the dog in English, telling him when and where to turn and when to stop.  These people are very strange!” Life Through the Eye of the Tarahumara- Romayne Wheeler.
