It's about 3 kms (1.8 miles) from the Divisadero viewing point along the rim to the cable car and activities center.
We were parked up about the half way point.
Sherman, parked up overlooking the Copper Canyon.
Because we were at the halfway point, we decided to walk back to Divisadero, then return to Sherman, then on to the cable car, then back to Sherman. Of course there are a lot of viewpoints along the way. And, because this is low season, there's hardly anybody around!
Some of the natives still live deep in the canyon.

Sherman, way off in the distance!
Ruth, hanging on for dear life!
Kevin, high above the canyon!
We made it to the cable car building. They have a viewing deck and a restaurant, and a glass floor that you can walk on that looks down into the canyon. Sure is a funny feeling doing that!
The restaurant viewing area.
Ruth was having a hard time taking that first step on to the glass floor until this lady grabbed her arm and walked out there with her. Too funny.
Now she's got the hang of it!
We spent some time chatting with these ladies who were visiting from Culiacan. They were a fun group!
We hiked back to Sherman and had lunch and a nap. Then, we moved from the best boondocking spot in the world. Why? Well, we wanted to do a hike into the canyon, but we didn't want to leave Sherman alone for that long of a time. And we had met a local guide, Roy, who had said that we could park at his place in the little village of Areponapuchi and that it's close to the trail going down into the canyon.
So we drove over there. One very (VERY!) rough section of road, about 300 meters, and then we had to make some effort to get level...but we're here! More pics tomorrow.
