Did you run window rock? We eneded up saving it for next time, but I would love to know how it is. I went out past La Gringa and part way up the wash to the end but that was it.

We only did a small part of it - the easy part. Went from BoLA up through the lake bed, hit the trail and then out to the coast. Took the truck as well. I knew we could make it that leg in the truck because we stopped in the Bay on the way out to Puerto Refugio and saw a couple trucks on the beach.

It was about 90 miles there and back. Sandy as all get out on the trail in that section.

Next time I want to do a complete loop from BoLA, up the lake bed, and then back down the coast to BoLA.

Pictures are awesome, we were told you can't make it going north but have to go north and then cut back South on the dry lake bed. We just missed you and fished with the same guy and stayed at their hotel...

Navonics. It runs on your phone or tablet. Better than the expensive marine GPS units. It will auto chart routes for you like Google maps does, just enter a start and finish.
