The Bahia De Los Angeles was beautiful. We have had the best riding weather.
We briefly lost Ken just before leaving town. We just went do to the shore to
get some photo opps.





Such a camera ham......









I was so glad to find out we were not headed to the dunes.

Good question. On this ride I ran into several people that had been to Southern Utah they ran on on how much
they enjoyed the scenery. Bryce, Moab, Zions, our Northern mountains....Utah really has no reason
to leave the state. My experience with Nevada is too drab for me.

I've done two rides into Mexico. This Baja trip and Copper Canyon. Loved them both but did catch myself
wondering why ride so far when Utah has so much to offer?

I really enjoyed riding by the ocean. I've had nothing but positive experiences with the Mexican people.
I guess somewhat of a bucket list check off.

Horizon fever? Grass is always greener? I don't know. I just enjoy riding to different destinations.

I'd have to agree with your last post,pluric. Idaho, Utah,Nevada & environs keeps me happy but doing other countries has it's nice things too. I rode(& hunted) all over Canada.Love Canadians & the cultural differences in Quebec(damned near married a Quebecer. Gorgeous gal.She rode a Goldwing--WELL.) You guys got me thinkin about Mexico. Looks interesting. The Mexicans I've met up here were all real nice folks. Hay, that top pict in your 2nd post above? The 3 of you & you holdin down that log(rock?)? It ain't goin anywhere. GREAT pict. You put some dandies on here.Keep up the good werkz.

I know these Baja reports are awful predictable as to where the next stop will be.
As Ken mentioned Stephan had taken off to spend some time in Ensenada. He
had family coming into Las Vegas and was going go spend time with them.

So it's now San Ignacio and this rare photo.







I'm always amazed at where they built these churches and what was involved with trying
to construct it.






Town square.



We continue to live on the edge and had dinner off this cart. Very tasty.

That's funny. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. French wannabees were rude to me
and I filled my tank just to get out of there. The rest of Canada no problem. Beautiful area.

You should keep thinking about Mexico. By my experience all the violence sterotyping is just that.
I'm sure there are places you should not go, just like in the US.

We hiked for hours to get to this remote cave for the cool cave pics.



Well that may not be completely true. It was a couple of doors down from the church and
I did walk. Small museum with a replica painting.

I only hope these guys are not waiting on us.



We originally wanted to stay in the Yurt camp ground. Missed it by one night. They were full
so up the street to the Oasis. One room three beds Goldilocks style. Cheap.

The owner of the Yurt place told us who she would use for whale watching and I was really interested.
She was kind enough to call ahead and reserve a boat for the next day.

They will pick you up or you can ride down to the launch area. We were heading that way so we rode
the bikes there the next day.

Pulling in to the launch area you see these giant mounds of something. Turns out to be sea shells.
A lot of sea shells. The mother load of sea shells. The Holy Grail of sea shells. The .... you get the picture.







I picture the poor dad that brought his kids out here to whale watch and ended up with
a trunk load of sea shell treasure.

Difficult to imagine an Oasis like San Ignacio........but there are several more of them scattered across Baja Sur....



I suggest San Javier, San Ysidro/La Purisima and the Comondu oases as worth a visit......we might hit one of them ourselves....

But it's time to head toward the Laguna for a bit of frolicking on the west coast of Baja.....sorry to say we didn't make it over to visit Shari later in the trip.........

But we did pull in to Antonio's Campo.....via the Canadian's B&B referral........even tho' they shut down pluric for a yurt.....gotta have reservations during whale season.............



And we ended up parking right next to Fred...in the white Ford F350.......who made the offer to guide us down the "lower road" to San Juanico.......in exchange for the gpx which he could use for himself and friends to make that same ride....often referred to as the salt or beach road.......reminds me of that '60's hit......Do You Know the Way to San Juanico.....
