Tree-covered canyon wall in Mexico

Tree-covered canyon wall in Mexico

Trees dot a rocky canyon wall. A cloudy sky covers the extensive canyon system. Copper Canyon is a large system of canyons in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua. While the Copper Canyon system is larger than the Grand Canyon in the United States, the Mexican canyon consists of a series of small canyons instead of one large canyon. Numerous small Indian communities live on the boundaries of the canyon and continue practicing traditional ways of life.
