David on your map of Gonzaga Bay you show a 4WD road lower right from Molino de Lacy as a dashed line. On the next map you show it as a solid line.

Yes, the two were made at different times and I have been trying different ways to show roads. The Gonzaga area map is also at a closer-in (larger) scale than the others. So, while I have been trying to standardize all twenty-something maps I have made, each one is still unique and individual, but more so with the Gonzaga map.
Thank you for the question.

the 4WD road out of Molino de Lacy should be a dashed line - it is quite rough for a 4x4

Ok... maybe a thread on the Gonzaga Bay area El Camino Real is warranted? You can see much of it on the latest satellite images, too!
Emerson (from Mexicali) and his friends tried to hike it, but ran short of time and turned back. The same thing happened to my son and me in 2003... Got about 2/3 of the way to the mission.


the old Indian trail in the Arroyo Santa Maria from where the road turns left to Las Palmitas to Mission Santa Maria is a solid 8 hour hike. Tough in some spots. Add an hour if you don't know the easier mesa sections in the canyon. Add 2 hours if you miss the climb out of the canyon at 29°43'0.81"N, 114°31'11.13"W. The beautiful pool at 29°42'52.22"N, 114°31'29.64"W will make you turn around if you are not a good cliff climber.

The Camino Real over the ridge line is an easy hike. On average a 10% grade up as well as down. About 7 miles. Usuallay takes me 3 to 4 hours.

It is:



I didn't treat the same road further south the same, but did put 4WD next to it by the Pioneer Mine.

David - will these be available in AAA type maps - all one piece? They are really nice and distinct!

Hi Marv, my plan is that they will be inside the Baja Bound Road Guide to supplement my road logs. The maps are not very stand alone without mileage figures on the dirt roads, in my opinion. The maps don't even show all of Baja, just some areas I think they are most useful. San Quintín, Santa Rosalía, Puertecitos, Magdalena Bay are some places I have not (yet) made a map to show.

If you go to the thread were the maps all are now, I outline my idea for that.

Thank you for your comments!
I still miss the Baja Calendar you made for so many years, very much!

Here is where the maps are all together, now: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=88771
