End of Central America Trip

The last post was the last journal I had written on the trip. From there I pushed onward to get to the Gulf Coast, though I never made it. While going through Mexico City I was pulled over again pretty much for being a gringo. There was no valid reason why they pulled me over and I argued for hours.

Lost in Mexico

In the morning I headed south to Copper Canyon. Only problem was I completely missed the turn and by the time I realized it I was too far to go back. I ended up taking the road to Hwy 24 near Hidalgo del Parral. From there I headed West to a small dirt trail over the mountains over to Sinola. The road became more remote as I continued.
