A flutter of color, a depth of shade; brillant sunlight, its solemn backdrop: Spinning out of thinning air comes the advent of an adventure. You are in the Cathedral Plaza in Juarez, Mexico, and time itself is about to ask you to dance. The face on your watch wears a sly smile; its hands vibrate like cat's whiskers. From now on, everywhere you look is up. Within this province lies the 25k000 swuare mile natural wonder called Copper Canyon, and our friend Polly Scotland has traveled there for a memorable trek back 500 years, and beyond. Unforgiving, embracing, delicate and dangerous; the canyon's rules are immutable. But if you are up to the challenge, it will show you this: that forward is a very interesting direction indeed.
