I can see a track on roads from the Hwy until the route gets to the wash leading to the destination. What is the experience of driving up the wash? Doable and how close can one get?

It is about a 1/2 mile walk from the first wash you enter from the road as I recall

Fatboy----------do you have an estimate of how far above the main Yubay waterhole those other two are, and are those two close together?

There are some interesting things to see in the area like window rock. Must walk or bike to it.

The long narrow one was right up the main one in all the pictures... maybe 50 feet upstream.

The other was 3/4 of a mile maybe a little more.... as I recall I walked around 1.5 miles upstream that day.

The 4WD road ends in the wide sand wash, a short distance west of the junction of the (north-south) Yubay canyon wash and that big one that comes from the northwest.

Park there and hike straight across the wash to the north side... look for the trail that short-cuts you to the Yubay canyon arroyo. This is the El Camino Real, by-the-way. As I recall, the over-all walking distance to the main tinaja (fig tree) was just under a mile... but I will double check. The boulders in the Yubay Canyon prevent vehicles from getting in there. Mules yes, Jeeps no.

That was the book project that introduced photographer Harry Crosby to Baja California and its El Camino Real! Harry's first book, The King's Highway in Baja California, was published in 1974.

Thanks to my librarian's quick eye, I acquired a set of like-new copies of Last of the Californios, The Sea of Cortez, The Call to California, The King's Highway, and Our Historic Desert--all for $1 each at the friends of the library sale. I had most of them, but couldn't pass them up.
