Cooper Canyon Lodges
In the northwest of Mexico lies a region of immense geographic variety. Only 200 miles from the U.S. border, this area has a unique and incredibly diverse flora and fauna that includes more than 400 species of birds. The Sierra Lodge - Creel, Chihuahua, Mexico right on the Continental divide, at 7600 feet - is nestled against the side of a small pine-scented valley with a stream rushing by the front door. Along the river in the canyon depths, is antique Batopilas, 1880's site of the world's richest silver mine. Here the Copper Canyon Riverside Lodge, an entire block of rambling Hacienda with its original 14 bedrooms restored to their 19th century wonder. These are just two of the choices of places to stay in this area.
