Los Mochis, Sinaloa

Well, we made it.  We are at the unloading ramp in the Los Mochis rail yard (map).  Tomorrow morning, we unload the train.

This morning's portion of the trip was the most scenic, as the train descended into the canyons, through many switchbacks and tunnels.  The latter part of the day was spent traversing the flatlands of Sinaloa, which was a different kind of scenery.  It was cold this morning, so we spent the first half of the day in the penthouse, taking in the scenery from the big window.  By the afternoon, it had heated up into the 80's, and we sat out on the back of our flatcar.

Tomorrow we will unload and head over to a campground here in Los Mochis.  We are also planning to visit the ferry dock in Topolobampo with the wagonmaster, to make sure Odyssey will not have any problems loading the ferry.
