Hi Mark, what Photobucket did was stop those with free accounts from posting photos on forums (3rd party hosting). TW, myself, and others simply paid up to the first level that allowed photo sharing here... about $40-50, I recall.

www.postimg.org is a free site and can be easily pre-set for Nomad's 800-pixel max. width, before uploading.

Joerover, I'll keep an eye out. My friends mark and josh want to hike up with me for the first day then turn back.

Davidk, I recall photo bucket wanted $400 minimum which is ridiculous. Maybe they came out with a more reasonable option. I can stomach $40 a year until switch them over away from photobucket.

Mark had some engine problems north of the border and had to get them fixed and he's coming down now so we'll head down from San Felipe tomorrow, only lost a couple days out of it. Im in San Felipe now.

Mark, with this app, all your photos from Photobucket are again showing up. See the post today by Jaybo for the link to the app (if you use Chrome or Firefox): http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=88714

Hi Mark, me troye from San Felipe/Gonzaga - heard wonderful things about the canyon. I met the ultimate non-pervy guru of the Baja in a sweet man name poncho at the mostincredible spear fishingand shore casting location possible. I caught 11 species there, 70 nmiles remote. You and theother mark should getin touch for details. Nice to have met you.

Hi Troye, other Mark here!
Great to have met you too. I'm guessing you got chased off the island by the wind? Sory we didn't have time to touch bases before you got back from the water but I turned around and noticed our window was closing as the tide was rising. Sounds like you were able to break in your spear?
Good luck on the rest of your trip. Start a thread here and upload some pictures!

Mark's back at his car. He took a spill and punctured a couple of his water bottles on the way up to the ridge. He decided to head back out rather than head in with less water than he felt comfortable with during the treck up and in.

Hey everyone, ya I decided to turn back at the pass. I was being silly and trying to push my fully laden bike up a steep section and it fell on me and I bashed up my knees. No structural damage but they were grazed and I didn't want to risk infection form the constant chaffing of riding a bike or hiking. Plus I was poking holes in my water bottles. Previously I used my kayak paddles to protect them but I didn't bring the packraft this time and didn't clue into this. I still had plenty of water but if I decided to go in, I'd have to desalinate at the ocean which might have been pushing it in terms of having enough water to get back out.

So there is a nice motorbike trail up to the pass there. Apparently some American guys have ridden the entire route through to Bay of LA. I'd like to try again with boat support and water drops on the beaches,m to avoid needing to desalinate. Also go with other people since it's a bit dicey by myself. With the proper planning you could ride all the way from Calamajue to Bay of LA.

I'll post a trip report when I get organised.

Good to meet you Troy, I'll have to head down further some other time and check out the fishing.

Glad you got out safe and decided to not make any risks we all would regret! I would like to know where this pass is.

The motorcycle track you mention sounds like a Bill Nichols track. TMW has posted Google Earth maps showing the Bill Nichols route.

Bill wanted to create routes across Baja that avoided paved roads (and major dirt roads, too). His first famous trail was across Baja from just south of Puertecitos to Highway 1 (and on to the Pacific). Another is what you may have seen, across Baja to L.A. Bay (north of the paved road)?
