John and I had spent Christmas of 2005 paddling in the region around Cd. Valles Mexico and our plan was to return this year at Thanksgiving to catch the end of the rainy season (Oct/Nov) in hope of finding better water levels and more options for creeking. The region around Cd. Valles SLP is within easy range for US paddlers willing to travel and much closer than the other options for whitewater in MX. We converged in Birmingham on a Friday night after work and a mere 26 hours of driving brought us to our campsite.
