Jeeps past Mission Santa Maria and south of Molino de Lacy + MORE ADDED.


I was sent some pretty cool off roading photos today and told I could share them with you guys...


Start of Trail, Rancho Santa Ynez.



Nearing the Widowmaker, view about 2-3 miles west of the mission.



The Bog, but dry... less than a mile from the mission.



Just over 2 miles east of the mission, on the long-ago bulldozed roadbed that ends on the ridge, above the deep canyon (where road construction to Punta Final was abandoned by Fred Hampe in the late 1960s).







+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

On the old mine road between Molino de Lacy and Coco's Corner:






A BIG THANK YOU TO RICH T. !!! :bounce::bounce::cool:

Thanks for posting those photos. I showed them to my Kia, and now it refuses to start! It is a fun little rig, great on beaches and such, but that rock pile is out of my comfort zone.

I like the camo. Nice jeeps and great pictures. Odd that the bog is dry. DK that is kind of jeeping we do alot that's why it didn't bother me too much to climb up that cliff to get out of the wash on the Pole Line trip. It's all what you are used to doing.

When a road has all but returned to natural state, what possesses people to pic the scab and make a new scar?

What ever happened to the tread lightly credo?

No wonder knuckle grabbers get a bad rap.

Nothing any off roading in Baja does compares to the destruction done when highways are built in Baja... particularly Highway One in 1973 that clear cut a huge swath of cardon, cirios, and all other life far wider than needed for the width of the skinny highway across central Baja.

Making roads for 2WD cars is the real enemy of Nature in Baja! :light:

Yes, it's absolutely appalling what those jeeps and knuckle-grabbers (?) are doing to those boulders----appalling!!!!

Jeezo, Goat, get a grip on what's important. You always seem to go too far in your eco-rants.

That looks like a great adventure. Lots of tricky sidehill action to keep you alert in Baja!

Just so everyone knows, that You Tube link image on Ken's Nomad posts is part of a painting by Desert Magazine editor Choral Pepper (1960's), she called it her Baja Dream. In the close up is the wall of Mission San Fernando with graves in front, cardon cactus, and part of a rock art man. The painting was given to me by Choral's son and daughter after she passed away in 2002.

The first post in the Baja Photo Gallery forum here explains how.
Until you get it figured, send them to me as you did with the others. Happy to help.
