 TOUR # 6

 THE VALLEYS

 2 HOURS OR 3-1/2 HOURS

 This tour features several valleys where very unusual rock formations can be found. All of these are near the Creel area. You have a choice of two options for this tour.

 San Ignacio Mission: a Jesuit church which is over 300 years old. The church is the center for religious ceremonies of the Tarahumara Indians of the community of San Ignacio which is the surrounding area around church.

 The Valley of the Mushrooms and the Valley of the Frogs: these are both located near the San Ignacio Mission church. These valleys contain many odd shaped rock formations which resemble, literally, mushrooms and frogs.

 The Elephant Rock: as it's name implies is a rock that resembles an elephant as seen from the front.

 Arareko Lake: is a beautiful lake located 8 kilometers from Creel.

 Tarahumara Cave Dwelling: the San Sebastian Cave is a well known dwelling near Creel where four generations of Tarahumaras live.

 Valley of the Monks: is a large valley filled with many large pillar formations as high as 200 feet. The size and shapes of these formations is incredible.
