Las Pintas Fossil Grotto on YouTube and more...


My passenger (Pat) on the Baja Extreme 2016 completed his production of the final part (#7) of his music enhanced videos of our Baja tour. This final part has:

Las Pintas, with its narrow passages and boulders covered in petroglyphs and fossils...

then it shows the onyx gift shop at Rancho Sonora (reported closed now)...

next is Mission San Fernando...

then La Lobera, the sea lion crater...

ending at Ron's aquaculture project at La Chorera/San Quintin where Ron (Baja Gringo) provided the best oysters and a fun birthday party for me and my guests... Viva Baja!

I will tell Pat... It is hard to take bad photos or videos in Baja... What a great place!

When I get a chance, I will make a post with all 6 YouTube links of Pat's showing the 10 days of fun we had in Sept., 2016, it was the Baja Extreme!

My wife Roxie an I always stopped at the Oynx shop and visted the old guy and usually bought a few trinkets. It was on our gotta stop list and several years ago we made the stainless sign he had out on the highway for him. We caught a relative there even though they weren't open and found out he had passed away a few years ago. Never did know his name but always enjoyed out visits with him. The guy said they plan to reopen sometime.

Was his name Santiago?That could be a grandfather as I am using travel books for the 70s an 80s! I had breakfast at Cafe Sonora in July 2000 after spending the night at El Volcán hoping the see the geyser erupt! I think he was old man Santiago?

One way to tell if we are talking about the same guy is if the Santiago your talking about was a lady smoocher to rival the Captain Francisco Munoz the "kissing Captain " of the old Baja airline days. If so he was the guy!!!

You are a true "old-timer"!
I did not know Rancho Sonora's Santiago that well!
Captain Francisco Muñoz was indeed famous!>>> http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=31396

Yes, Jimmy spun many a yarn in his fun book. The "Made in Japan" story is priceless!
