One of the most exciting and adventurous sections we have encountered yet was crossing the Barrancas del Cobre, in Chihuaha, Mexico. Beginning with very real warnings of bandits and kidnappings, filled with epic mountain biking, and concluding with the military holding us at gunpoint while drug smugglers lurked in the darkness.

The story was not put on our blog, but is being published in the next issue of WEND Magazine. A quarterly publication born from a love of climbing, surfing, cycling and kayaking, Wend is filled with sport, style, creativity and inspiration to fuel your passion for adventure.

Look for it on the shelves the 21st of this month. Until then, check out their website and the opening spread to the article.
