We have the *LeafCanoe Thursday Travel News* coming again! Today you will learn about the coolest events and places to visit in the upcoming 2 weeks! Get ready, because October is full of surprises!
If you travel or you are based in Central America you definitely cannot miss out the rails in *Copper Canyon, in northern Mexico*. There's something special about the Copper Canyon's scenery in October. Located in Chihuahua, in the north of the country, this natural wonder is less known than its geological counterpart *the Grand Canyon in the US*, but it’s equally impressive!
It's also one of the world's greatest railways, but travelers make a mistake and often visit it with the worst of the summer heat over - during the summer time! So if there's one advice we could give you, it would be to go there before the cold of winter arrives, but after the waves of heat - *in October*. It's probably by far the best time to visit Mexico’s Copper Canyon! This place has everything from the dramatic landscapes of ravines and peaks, forests to hiking trails. Of course you ca n travel there on horseback or by train (*Ferrocarril Chihuahua Pacífico*, the only passenger train service left in Mexico and one of the great rail journeys of the world). Ok, but it's only Mexico and we have plenty other places to recommend in October.
Without further ado, enjoy this week *Thursday Travel News* just right below.
