I remember a few of those places. The river was much higher when we were there three years ago. Thanks for posting.

The river is lower then normal for this time of the year. If the monsoons come in late June things will change fast. A number of years ago in September the bridge (up stream of town (by Margaretta's hotel) we had to wait two days to get across over the bridge. The water was 15' deep. Before the new built up road along the river was their. The cars in town close to the river were up to their roofs on the higher ground under water. We only got to Satevo and had to turn around as it had only dropped to about 8' deep. There was no way we would make any of the other river crossings. That was about a 400+ mile detour. The high mountains had 2+ feet of snow that was melting and with the rains it was a real mess. With all of this it was still a amazing adventure That was a group of 12 vehicles plus myself on that adventure.

The Sierra Madre mountains and Barrancas del Cobre are a special place!
