Outside the Mexican magic town of Creel in Chihuahua visitors can walk among giant rock formations. One special place known as the Valley of the Monks or Bisabirachi, is a must visit. There is little resemblance to monks in the formations, but the name was changed since the original name given by the Tarahumara Indians might offend some today. But, sometimes you just must appreciate and smile at the literal, Bisabirachi actually translates to valley of the erect penises.
Stay adventurous, Craig
Magic Towns or “Pueblo Magicos” as special “magical” towns inside Mexico that offer visitors a unique look at the culture and color that is essential Mexico. A friend of mine Jessica at Mexican at Heart quests to see them all although I don’t think she has visited Creel yet. Either with over 50 identifed in Mexico, I’ll admit I’d like to do the same.
Also, this image is part of the 2013 Mexican March Madness. This year it will consist of 31 photos in across the 31 days of March. Additionally, I received passage through Chihuahua, but the opinions expressed in this post and all my writing are always my own.
