I think Mr Crosby was the first thing I read about Baja, so long ago, that I forgot. Then There was a book about a guy sent by the US fed to explore Baja back in 1853 or some other year. After he ran out of water, the indians nursed him back to health. Then he reported to the fed it, (baja), was a waste land. So, the fed never tried to claim baja. I still think he lied to help the indians who saved him. Then I found out baja was donkey friendly, so I figured bicycles were ok too.



looks like somebody did all my homework for me.

Mr. Crosby has written many a book, it is a lot of work, I don't wish that kind of work, anymore, on him.

As for El Camino Real, again, I have posted many times on its location and included Google Earth images to show where you can see it, south of Santa María to San Javier. Modern construction, including Hwy. 5 right now near Gonzaga Bay has obliterated it in many places.

Howard Gulick, in the early 1950s, documented and mapped El Camino Real from El Rosario south to Loreto: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=77934

Here is my 2010 series on seeing the El Camino Real, on maps and space images, from north to south:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

I have not seen woodchucks in baja, but I have seen a badger.
I am not aware of paintings of badgers.

Hi Camote, good to see you!
Harry is (as far as I know today) still with us. He recently did an interview for KPBS' Elsa Sevilla for her San Diego, California history series: http://video.kpbs.org/show/san-diego-historic-places/

Being that we just had President's Day weekend, I was thinking of our great Matomi adventure of 2001. Can you put that film on YouTube?
Time moves by so fast! How about your interview with Harry at the first Pyramid Resort Booksigning event?


Wow! Harry is 90 and doing great. Thanks for that link, he is truly a peninsular treasure. If you look closely the Bradshaw documentary is based on the Harry interview footage from the 2003 booksigning event.

I'm trying to embed the Matomi video here but not sure if it will work. If not, here's the link: https://vimeo.com/206406826/a08c7cb808
btw, the video is posted on a private setting meaning it can't be found in a search, only with the link. But if anyone appearing in the video has objections to it being online, I will happily and promptly take it down.

Cave paintings off San Borja road


We were planning to go see them again last week.
All the signs on the LAB highway and the San Borja dirt road have been removed.
You can still drive up there but it is in a pretty soft sand wash and we had no proper vehicles to chance getting stuck so passed on the side trip
Interesting that the signs are all gone
Someone either wants the place left alone, or the LAB guides are trying to keep it a secret

I did a full photo spread in my February trip report for Montevideo. The road is now a 4WD run and some brush scratching going in. There are two signs at the junction, one points to L.A. Bay and the other to San Borja, but none to what's up the road that comes in there! Glad you went!

Seems there are many more pintura repestre then we thought. How do you find them? Find a nice rock to nap on in the afternoon shade. When you wake from your nap they are right in front of you. I heard a story about the day of 2 suns rising in the sky. I cut my search short because it got up past 100 and I had little water. Then I chanced upon a women with a parasol standing in the desert alone, takeing photos of wild flowers.

That was a great President's Day weekend group trip. El Camote did a great job with filming and music choice. Four months later, we toured with El Camote filming the BBBB-1 party at Cielito Lindo and then the Viva Baja Van tour and Lost Mission Search south of L.A. Bay. That was 16 years ago and now Sarah has a daughter who is 6 and ready to begin her Baja trips!
