Girls at Cusarare Mission
The Sierra Tarahumara within and around Barranca del Cobre is a unique place. These nomadic natives live off and in the land - literally - in caves, overhangs, make shift shelters or cabins. The Raramuris, as they call themselves, are famous for their ability to run long distance, up to 72 hrs. at once. They are known for running/ hunting their game to exhaustion, playing foot games for hours or days, and running between villages for trade purposes. Raramuris have set running records in the U.S.
