Mexico Mazatlan to Durango - February 2015

I learned three things today.
1. Mexico does have some nice roads. We just spent the day riding one of the best roads I have ever ridden. It was spectacular. The road was recently finished in 2013 and winds its way up through the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains from Mazatlan to Durango. The road has 63 tunnels and 115 bridges crossing ravines and going through hill sides. Just about the time you reach the top you are treated to the Baluarte Bridge, which is now the highest bridge in North America at 390 meters (don't look down that's 1,280ft). It is a toll road but it seemed more like the price of admission to an amusement park ride. Now I just need to come back and make this ride on a sport bike.
2. It does snow in Mexico
3. Durango is a beautiful City
