Travel to Chihuahua, Mexico with Photographer Ralph Velasco – Episode 301

categories: mexico travel
Copper-Canyon-Mexico

The Amateur Traveler talks again to Photographer Ralph Velasco about the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Ralph was recently on assignment throughout Mexico but this region made the biggest impact on him.

The city of Chihuahua itself is rather industrial. There are some nice historical sites such as a beautiful church, Poncho Villa’s museum. But the valley just north of Chihuahua through Casas Grande and heading to the UNESCO World Herital Site of Paquimé is absolutely gorgeous. Paquimé is a pre-Columbian pueblo complex.

Chihuahua is also known for the beautiful Cooper Canyon which is best seen from the train that transverses it. Copper Canyon is a popular tourist destination with Mexicans. Copper Canyon is larger and portions are deeper than the Grande Canyon.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been alternating between giggles and revulsion at the idea of a “Chihuahua burrito.” 🙂
