We camped at de la Pargo this time. There are things about camping on a cobble beach that recommend it. Easier to keep your feet clean, and you can hear the coyotes creeping up on you at night!

That is the Baja that I hold onto so dearly. Being able to find a solitary spot on a beach to your own and leaving it without a trace, other than a few tire tracks.

It is rewarding to know that this is still possible after forty plus years.

Thanks to all here who contribute to all of our passion for a land that deserves all we can do to continue to enjoy it as we have for so long.

Agree 100%!

After visiting here, Los Burros, and getting tantalizingly close to the Mission Dolores del Sur ruin . . . I can't wait to go back. I could see possibilities on a mountain bike or backpacking, as there is quite a bit of water in the canyons.

Very nice photos... and looks like you were very near the 9th California mission (located down there from 1721-1741).

Yeah, I'm kicking myself for not making the time to scramble down and see it . . . next time!

The whole region is so remote and beautiful . . . I just wanna eat it up! I'd like to go back and do the route between Gonzaga and San Evaristo again too. I've never had the feeling of "Old Mexico" so much as in that region, at least in Baja.

Great... Maybe see the ruins and graves near Rancho La Presa (also advertised as a 'Dolores' site)... Mission Los Dolores did move in 1741, to La Pasin (also called Chill), two miles east of La Presa. It is called Rancho La Capilla in the Almanac and at last Nomad visit, was a goat ranch on the crumbled ruins of the mission.

Here are Jack Swords photos at La Presa:

Photos at both sites for Los Dolores are on this page: http://www.vivabaja.com/missions1/page5.html

Thanks for the exceptionally beautiful images posted, this just makes me re-consider our possibilities of visiting Tembabichi next spring since we don't have a 4x4 or even a TRD... but as salttram mentioned: "... doing the most with the least . . . " and also: "...The locals do it in all kinds of vehicles, and with lousy tires to boot . . . so there's that. The village is very small, but the people are friendly, and it won't be too far to walk if you need help...." We may just end up on the trail to Tembabichi anyway... it's all part of the adventure and discovering "old Baja" before it disappears to golf greens and marinas. We've had our share of adventure and mishaps during our voyages down Baja... it just makes it more interesting and joyful when you talk about it later on... VIVA BAJA...



...work to camp and fish.... dream to be there....

Damn, I want to go here!! We took a boat from Loreto to La Paz a couple years ago, and pulled into Los Gatos for a quick stop. Looks like a great drive in from Constitution.
