Two trips 12/4/13 and 12/3/17
Changes were fire remains found in 2017 and the road was much worse to get to the abandoned building. Anything but a high lifted Jeep type vehicle definitely required. Road from building to the spring parking was about the same. High clearance desirable and the track is different per my GPS. Road was heavily overgrown with huge palm branches. The only place we found to camp was near the building, but the heavy overgrowth, trees and bushes made it testy. We barely found room for four rigs. The infrastructure which includes tubs and Poly/PVC piping has suffered from neglect and will need a complete do over. The spring has not changed much and is still a nice place to visit. The hike only took a few minutes, but is all uphill.
Stopped both times at Isabel. No significant change there. Interesting place but as you all know it is really trashed. Never found the airstrip because I did not look enough. There is adequate parking at the beginning of the hike.
Both trips from San Felipe via Saldana/Cohabuzo was less than a half day, but we did not spend significant time at Isabel. Roads to the destination are all good.
Tried to explore La Mora, but a large cattle ranch has taken over that area, both the canyon and east of the canyon. The ranch owner was friendly and gave us directions back to Cohabuzo since our GPS maps did not show any roads. Btw, That ranch seems to be very well funded.
