That is not it. I literally mean a BATHTUB. From the looks of the pic the bathtub I remember is further up the canyon. Now I gotta go back.

Thanks for clearing that up DK I thought he was talking about the hottub:tumble: so you know english is may second language i only have 3 years of schooling in the usa, therefore all my bad spelling shows all the time, but Im still learning. the only thing that whe found was a old jacuzzi about 50 ft upstream from this hottub, that's connected by the same water source.. I didn't hike up the canyon maybe the tub still there ...:?:

Good thing someone was there to help remove them. They give a real meaning to pain in the back.

Whe cross the border in tecate friday, the 6 about 9:30. stop to get somethig to eat end up eating hamburgers in tecate what a irony hamburgers in mexico o well, got to the laguna exit about 10:20 am road is in pretty go shape, got to the canyon around 10:40 am due to the peolple in my caravan did'nt fell good doing 80 ml/hr on the Salada so we had to slow down.stay in Arturos El Sol camp. perfect weather 76* degress., next day got ready and took off to explore el palomar canyon 30 miles down the road. road condition is ok up to the 24 mile marker then in whinds to the west to the top of the canyon thats when you start crossing sand washes this is the entrance to el palomar canyon ( 31 56' 39" N 115 40' 89" W ) this is where the bad road starts. this canyon is just 4 miles up the stream going throught a palm fill oasis at the end is a bathing pool just like the ones in GC this is the end of the road ( 31 56' 25" N 115 45' 06" ). Altitud 1725 FT The next day when to see the other camps on the east side of the stream, across from Arturo walking around the camps I meet the original owner of GC Don Jose Loya espinoza ( according to them they are related to the espinozas of el Rosario.) He told me that the owner of Arturos side was Jose Loya Murillo wich die in 1987, but the all the canyon belongs to him, he sold the other side to Jose Loya Murillo Arturos Dad. Afther all, it was a nice trip putting a side that whe run out of paper plates and had to recycle old ones. another great trip to GC like always whe enjoy being there. looking foward to go back soon...

Here are 2 maps and 2 'zooms in' on the canyon...

First, the now reported out-of-print, 2009 Baja CA Almanac (if this is a tease tio get you to buy one, great) page, followed by a zoom in on the canyon area.

Next, the long out-of-print 2003 Baja CA Almanac page, then a zoom in on the Palomar Canyon area. Note that the 2003 and earlier Almanac were of higher detail/ bigger scale than the 2009... so older is still good to get, if you can!









That runway is by the general's abandoned hunting lodge at the entrance to Santa Isabel Canyon.

Palomar Canyon is a jewel, and huge!!!

You know, David, after looking at your maps, I am thinking that my memory might be failing me on this one------referring back to my post about the 1958 trip, perhaps it was Santa Isabel Canyon that we went up that trip--------I know I have camped several times in each of those canyons, but now I am thinking the "Sierra club trip" that I drove the flat-bed truck up a canyon might have been Santa Isabel. (that was a long time ago)

Barry... I don't see any added text by you in the quote bump above? Do you think you were in Palomar or Santa Isabel?

Not sure, David, but I think Santa Isabel after seeing your maps. See my comments added to your posting above with the ancient picture in it within the "quote" box.
