About a month before I left on my trip I bought Rosetta Stone Spanish, well I have to say the study sessions didn't go as planned........so no my Spanish is very bad......but I'm good with sign language I have 8 months to study now so I should be better for my next trip I hope.

That cook made the biggest Burrito I ever had and I have a few extra pounds on my waist to prove it. I went there everyday while in Cabo.
That burrito was huge. And it doesn't hurt that a cute woman made it. :::GRIN:::

Great report! Thanks for sharing those amazing pics. I've always wanted to ride to Baja but could never find the time. Maybe this will be the year

A few miles of Baja.

I found that riding in Baja I was always in awe of the scenery and riding slow looking around just to take in all the landscape. I also back tracked a lot to try and get that perfect post card picture like I did in this video.

My Adventures

I thought I would share some more riding on my KLR starting with a ride I did to Harrison Hot Springs this weekend.



Sun was just coming over the mtns when I left on my KLR.


Had to stop for some morning breakfast.



and the morning buzz.























































Playing with the camera.

Cheers

Off for a ride along the lake that's almost 60km long and covers 54,000 acres.

































Yes the Sasquatch lives here in the park.





Yippy some dirt.

There is such a difference riding here compared to Baja, there it's deathly quiet and here you have the sound of the wind blowing through the trees, birds and the water flowing in the rivers.
