    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

    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.

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

    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.

    There are great camp spots along the lake like this one.

    I was thinking cool a Starbucks till I got closer.........but they did have good java. I use a Pentax K10 and a Pentax WG-1. I'm buying a Pentax K5 in a few weeks so the K10 will be up for cheap.
