Reflexiones

English // Class: 3 B II

From the community of Casa Blanca in Rinconada, located 60 kilometers from Monterrey, taking the Saltillo highway, from the road we’ll take the Cortina canyon to the south. This is where we start a long hike between mountains and big rock formations with plenty of panoramic views; we’ll arrive and pass the ghost town of Chupaderos. The long hike becomes more difficult when we start the path that take us to Paso Del Caballero (Knight Passage), when arriving to this point is necessary to take extra precautions since without protection or handrail we’ll pass a narrow pass made in a high wall, then it become a very simple path to the Bofa Hill. The Reflections canyon is entered making 6 rappels inside (course of rappeling included).
