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 <a href="http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=145817">the original thread</a> 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.
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.
..is a passion hit.
Waren Miller with bikes and no hype. awesome.
This is just need to know information: Am i supposed to enjoy the irony or pity the sincerity?

It won't be easy going to work after watching that. Good stuff!
"Check out dude."
Just another FOCer
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.
Now with 3 more inches!
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.

One of the year's best films! Has Oscar written all over it.
Entertainment Weekly says:
An emotional rollercoaster ride of epic proportions...Magnificent!

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.
Damn... I gotta save some bucks and go up there. It's freakingly beautiful belief...and in my own country!!
Well I'm gona post thsi reply now as I will b waiting a while to get it DLd on my crawl-up. I can bet that it's going to seriously make me jones to ride and hopefully by the time I've finished DLing it (sometime prob just about middle to end of next week) my thumb will be better and I can go for a ride. Look forward as always to your stuff MTBill.

Cool video! What type of camera did you use?
Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

I heard the mission bell
And i was thinking to my self
This could be heaven or this could be hell...
I like to ride my bike.
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.....

I hope to make a video like that of the trails I ride around here someday.
I am lost, I'm no guide
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!

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.
