Aerial Tour of Coahuila


Coahuila is life


Check out this stunning aerial tour of  Coahuila, Mexico.  One of the 31 states which make up the Mexican federation, Coahuila is located near the northeastern corner of the country.  With a long border with the US state of Texas, Coahuila is largely covered by the great Chihuahuan Desert, the third-largest desert in the Western Hemisphere, which covers portions of northern Mexico and the southern USA.  The video does a marvelous job of showing the stunning landscapes of one of the least densely populated Mexican states.

Copper Canyon


Chepe Express Train - Exploring Copper Canyon


Copper Canyon is one of the great natural treasures of Mexico. Situated in the northwestern state of Chihuahua, it's actually a system of six connected canyons formed by six different rivers which drain the nearby mountains into the Gulf of California.  The main canyon is traversed by a railroad, construction of which took over four decades due to the challenging conditions.  Award-winning contributor PostandFly created this incredible drone video of the magnificent canyon and its train line.

Chihuahua's Valley of the Monks


Valley of the Monks


Contributor Postandfly gives us this drone's eye view of some of the most unusual rock formations on the planet.  It's called the Valley of the Monks, and it's in the Chihuahuan Desert, in the Mexican state of the same name.  The extreme conditions of the area turned what would have been ordinary looking sedimentary rocks into fantastically shaped formations.  The valley, which is also called the Valley of the Gods, is one of the most popular outdoor tourist attractions in northern Mexico.  

Real de Catorce, San Luis Petosi




Award-winning contributor Postandfly created this beautiful aerial video of the "ghost town" of Real de Catorce, once one of the great mining towns of Central Mexico.  Situated in the state of San Luis Potosi, it's roughly in the middle of the great triangle formed by Mexico City, Monterrey, and Guadalajara.  The town was founded as a result of a large nearby silver discovery in the late 18th century, and at its height, it was one of the biggest sources for the highly silver-dependent Spanish Empire.  

The "Oasis" of Cuatro Ciénegas, Coahuila

Cuatro Ciénegas Biosphere Reserve




If you think that deserts and wetlands are mutually exclusive, you should check out this drone video from the Mexican state of Coahuila by k2team.mty.  It was filmed in the Cuatro Ciénegas Biosphere Reserve, a wetland area within the vast Chihuahuan desert that covers much of northern Mexico and parts of the Southwestern USA and west Texas.  Home to over 150 endemic species of flora and fauna, the reserve's lifeforms and their adaptation to this unique environment are being studied to assess the possibility of life on Mars.
