I think it was his location on the 1-25-20 map?

Hi David,

Back in Bahia. Thanks again for the wind reports. So helpful in decision making.

Had a fascinating time out there.

A few pics to illustrate all the SPOT postings. Didn't hear another human voice in two-and-a-half weeks. Was a great time to be there... too cool for rattlers and bugs. Could sit out and enjoy stars and campfires. So many ospreys, endemic chuckwallas and collared lizards. Some warm, sunny days... gray and raining for a couple of days. Fascinating canyon hikes with pools and palms. Awesome bioluminescence and amazing "orange" tides.
