High in the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains of Northern Mexico, the Copper Canyon Train is one of the great rail journeys in the world. While "El Chepe" is not a luxurious ride, it does offer splendid, jaw dropping views of a canyon system that is larger, and at times deeper, than the Grand Canyon in Arizona. High in these mountains, the Tarahumara people, with their super-human running ability, fled from Spanish explorers and missionaries in the 16th century, and have lived here ever since. The picturesque scene in the photo was taken at the town of Timoris, where the train traverses the valley 3 times and uses a mile-long tunnel to gain elevation on its way up to Divisadero. Look to the left of the waterfall and you will see the tunnel that leads directly behind and underneath the waterfall.
