The Exquisite Copper Canyon and Some Amazing Paintings By Steve Larsen

I’ve gotten a few questions about my motorcycle ride in Mexico’s Copper Canyon and its timing, right before my second OH surgery.

Picto Diary - Armenia with MotoDiscovery - Pics and words by Steve Taylor

Spontaneous boogy by restaurant patrons, including some of our group, to Armenian folk music. Locals were happy to see us gringos dancing and were eager to offer dancing tips. Very festive atmosphere! The music highlighted Armenia's ambiguous location, neither Europe, nor Asia. While Armenians are Christian, and while their life-style practices seem orientated towards European life, their folk music is decidedly "Eastern" in sound and rhythm. Located in the southern Caucusus, with Asian Anatolia on the west and Moslem Azerbaijan on the east, it seems hard to categorize, at least from a cartographer's point of view, Armenia as Europe.

TOURATECH Copper Canyon to the Baja Expedition Day 4

Today we get an early start so that we can make it to Urique while it is still light out deep in the canyon. We follow a very nice twisty, paved road for many miles until we hit the main overlook for the Copper Canyon. The road seems like a racetrack with its flowing curves and nice pavement, and in fact, Juan tells us he works with a car club that hosts an annual rally race in this area.
