Ecotourism is taking hold of beautiful Sonora and camping isn’t hard to find. El Pinacate is a volcanic region located in the northwest of the State of Sonora including Rocky Point, San Luis Rio Colorado and Plutarco Elias Calles counties.
Observed from space El Pinacate resembles a large moon crater. It is the result of hot magma building up pressure deep in the earth’s crust for 4 million years. Quite a notable side trip if you enjoy amazing geologic formations and environments.
