    Copper Canyon - Mexico ~VIDEO~

    At the end of October I went on a truly awesome nine-day adventure tour to Copper Canyon in Mexico.



    Here is the original thread I posted on the trip.

    I finally got done with the video for the trip. Words and video just simply can not adequetely convey what an incredible life experience traveling through Copper Canyon can be, so keep in mind that it is cooler, steeper, funner, and a whole bunch more "er"s than it looks on the video. I could have easily made this two videos but decided I liked it better as one big yonking video.

    The video 16 minutes long and will set your harddrive back 115MB.

    Man, thanks for that treat. I needed that just about now sitting up here in the wind blown, snow covered tundra of the northern plains.

    One of your best works to date for sure.

    Oscar time!

    Is it too late for an Academy Award nomination? Great scenery, riding and production! Interesting how the low angle of the sun this time of year shows even that far south.

    Good job! Awesome!

    Awesome video, a must see!

    You really conveyed the fun of mountain biking in this video.

    Great songs, high quality video, nicely edited, cool Ken Burns effects with the still pictures.

    The video has some incredible views and some chunky-tech singletrack here and there.

    Cool song credits at the end.

    This will do nicely.

    I'm invigilating an exam right now and I'm bored to tears. Now I can look forward to this downloading, and watching it.

    Going to Creel myself in 2 weeks. Just hiking though

    I'd like to organise a biking trip there for later next year.

    Good job!

    I'll second the thumbs up.

    Can't comment on the sound, as I have to have it muted right now. That looks so good. Great work.

    I'm busy downloading the rest of your videos right now.

    Thanks for completely making my morning.

    Since your original post, I have been waiting for this video. What a great surprise to find it on such a dreary, foggy day.

    Nice, sweet, fantastic.... Thanks for posting this.

    And thanks for putting the song credits in there as well.

    jps

    That was great! I wish the weather was like that up here in Massachusetts. The animals were cool too.

    That's until you find a donkey/cow/(insert farm animal name here) at the exit of a blind corner.....

    Been there, done that (I mean almost crashing with an animal 5 times heavier than you)... It ain't fun.

    It was a tour through KamiKiwi Adventure Tours. They have thier standard price on the site but we did a customized longer version that ran just a little more. Pretty freaking reasonable considering what you are getting.

    Thanks for the kudos.

    amazing

    One of the best, if not the best home vid. i've had the opportunity to DL. Nice job! I judge a good vid on this site by the "does it make me want to go" factor and needless to say, I WANT TO GO. Thanks!

    Hey Bill

    I'm going to be in Creel for a couple of nights just after Christmas. No bike, just a little hiking, unfortunately. Where did you guys stay? I'm trying to call ahead to book a room somewhere.
