    I thought I would post some pictures of my ride to Baja Mexico from Vancouver that I took Dec 24/11 to Jan 25/12.

    Like always it was raining when I left Vancouver.

    After crossing the border into Washington the rain let up a little.

    Still rain off and on in Oregon.

    Once I made it to Burbank I met up with Joel who kindly put me up for the night and the next morning
    we crossed into Mexico.

    Hi Morgan,

    For the video and pictures I use a GoPro HD, Pentax K10 and a Pentax WG-1. I like having everything waterproof being from Vancouver. :D
