Yubay is just background garbage from the Trackmaker map. The only things that are valid are my WPs and the GPS track

I have explained before.
This site has a 250k limit on attachments so I cannot post a GPX or KML file. So if you have trouble converting the USR file send me a U2U with your email address and I will forward you the files.

BTW Trackmaker always gets conversions correct. The only thing Trackmaker cannot deal with is the Lowrance GEN3 format. And the other tools off the web try to do the new format conversion, but many get it wrong. Trackmaker is for PCs only.
The USR attachment to this message is a repeat of the last one I posted.

I have revised the GPS file to add the WPs that all the contributors provided. The basic track is unchanged.
Please use your tool to create a .KML or .GPX file from the attached .USR file.

My last trip into this area, my group traveled to Cocos, backtracked about 1 mile to a dirt road on the east side of the Gonzaga-Chapala road, then entered a small canyon route that was spring fed, filled with standing water and mud. A virtual oasis in this desert region.

10+ years ago I drove thru the wash and the water came up to the top of my tires and the grass was up as high as the top of the hood. The last several trips there was nothing more than puddles. When the racers drove thru they splashed a lot and they were unhappy because they got wet and it made for a very cold drive after that. Now at normal speeds you probably wont even get mud on your tires and any kind of rig can pass the wash with no issues. How times have changed.
David's pictures are still accurate for Jan 2018.

I have been through Calamajue Canyon in 2008 with 10 Jeeps and 3 Toyotas. It was a very good run. Mud was about 2 feet deep in places. Time is short as I'm preparing for a week trip south of the border. Photos can follow, but they will have to wait.
