I feel already kinda funny..... :19: Now, I can see where you are trying to get. Let me see if i can pitch in with some ideas here: In no particular order:1.- Check out the very very Old (almost 350 years old) Spanish & English Haciendas...with living descendants, still manning the reins there. Those are breathtaking, in Valle Colombia.2.- Check out El Tunnel...an amazing feit of engineering there.3.- Visit the Totems at Cuesta de Malena, while there visit the ancient cave and Malena's Grave site. Set some flowers there.4.-Visit the Marlboro commercial like plush valleys of Valle Colombia and the ancient religious caves of the Paleo Indians...no red buffalo here, we are talking serious artifacts and paintings sites.5.- Visit Rancho Buena Vista and the tombs of the early English cattlemen and it's history. Hear the owners share in a bonfire the great history of their family and visit the cabins a top of Sierra La Encantada and look thru the window as the bears gather outside of the cabin for an early morning juniper breakfast. No topping this one.6.- Check out the La Encantada, still operating, mine.7.- Visit Cuatro Palmas & Agua Chile mines...both an amazing sites.8.- Get a top of Sierra La Babia, and visit the very first Spanish settlement (Presidio) still standing and check out the writtings on the wall...from the soldiers themselves. This is incredible.9.- Visit the Villages: Norias de Boquillas, Jaboncillo El Grande, Boquillas del Carmen, San Vicente with it's local little museum, Ejido Las Piedras and the ONLY inland dam...with water. Believe it or not.10.- Take on the adventure to go and visit the Puerto Rico mines..this is a tuffy just to get there. While there, gather enough cojones to go up the Burro Trail (You and Al did) and check out El Pico. I think this is the most absolute brutal hike there, but the most rewarding IMO.11.- Dwell a little bit at Elvira's crack at the face of the Del Carmen's.12.- Go up to El Jardin, on the Del Carmen's thru El Jardin's corridor with 4x4's..the ONLY way to go up there.13.- Check out the small trickles of water emanating from the Caņon del Diablo a top of the Del Carmen's.14.- Treck on to Caņon del Colorado, where is the Sierra divide between Sierra del Burro and Sierra del Carmen. An amazing spot in the planet.I am just covering here no more than 2.5 million hectares . There are tons and tons of places to check out, that you could not possibly do it in a lifetime.15.- Check out paradise?...a pipe dream, but Maderas Del Carmen is certainly doable...but it would take time to get the proper permitts (CEMEX). Absolutely no help from the Rangers any where, no Panther Junction and maps store or telephones. I promise you, no Restaurant at the Basin Lodge, Lots and lost of help from the folks who live there, and memories that will need an external drive just to store them in your brian.
