'bbbait' (Wayno) March 2019 Pics of: Gonzaga, Coco's, Piedra Blanca


Wayno sent me some new photos taken this past week at Rancho Grande, Alfonsina's, Coco's Corner, and Rancho Piedra Blanca & the nearby giant cave art site... both along the road between El Arco and Punta San Francisquito.

The man pointing out the cave art site also has a store in Guerrero Negro that sells curios and knives and air guns, etc. I will add those pics later.

In a nice bit of news, Wayno said he sold his longtime business in Blythe, B&B Bait and is now a Baja resident. Congratulations!!! Maybe he needs a new Nomad handle from bbbait?

I pulled into Piedra Blanca about noon a few years ago, and was the only one there. The place was immaculately maintained, and a woman came out and offered to open up the restaurant if I was hungry.

I was, so while she fired up the kitchen to turn out some excellent machaca burritos, I took my gentle old dog for a brief walk. The lady liked my dog, and as I prepared to put Cleo back in the car she said it would be alright if I brought her in with me.

This is a working ranch, and they produce machaca, and fresh cheese in commercial quantities. They had both for sale the first time I stopped there, but had shipped their entire inventory to market the next time I visited, so if you see it, buy it!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

I wrote about it on Baja Bound a few years ago: https://www.bajabound.com/bajaadventures/bajatravel/painted_...

I hope everyone who is able can visit these wonders of early man in Baja before they are fenced off from the public as is happening in so many places.

Rancho Piedra Blanca advertises tours of the cave on their Facebook page.

We had a blast with Wayno's group whale watching too!
He fixed me up with some cough syrup..hahahaha

Hola Harold

Do some digging on google earth. You will see a trail through the desert at Mesa El Carmen. Worth the trip. It is before Piedra Blanca as you drive east from El Arco.

Stopped at Piedra Blanca for a meal the next day. Great people, good food.
