I got in using the link and signed in with my e-mail and got a message of 3 more free articles before having to sign up. The article was very interesting but there were no pictures only captions where the picture would be.

If anyone has contact with these Ranchers and can get some cash to them, PM me. I would like to cover the cost of some feed for their animals to help get them through the drought.

It's worth a little effort to read . . . the photos are really lovely. Also, if you contact Trudi Angell, she can assist in finding ways to help the ranchers financially. https://www.saddlingsouth.com/contactus.php

It's a tough life and for many it's the only one they know. I wish them the very best. One of the best books I ever read was "The Last of the Californios" by Harry Crosby.

David K, is that one of the books you sell or is it out of print? I would love to read it, I find that area very interesting. On the Mule trips into the canyon to see the painting would they allow you to walk or do you have to ride? I prefer to hike but it would be nice to have my gear packed for me.

Sorry, no.
I have several new copies of Harry's last Baja history research book, Gateway to Alta California. It is about the final leg of the Serra/ Portolá expedition from San Fernando de Velicatá to San Diego. An excellent book!
'Last of the Californios' was republished with a different title, however! Go to Sunbelt Publications to order it.

They definitely prefer you ride the mules. Their barn, their rules.

Truly a unique and wonderful place and inhabited by fine folk like Nary and Nacho. Afraid their way of life is just about over for all of the reasons Trudi mentioned and a few she did not. In the meantime if you get the chance do a trip on mule into their life.

Lots of us on Nomads have traveled into their country and posted trip reports here also. Here is one of ours:

If you have a Baja bucket list this should be near the top. Cheers!

Slightly off topic, Wasn't there a new movie about the Vaquero culture and life that was recently released? Can't remember the name though!

Edit-Not Corazón Vaquero....

Are you referring to "La Recua"?

Also, there are several video clips, including on YouTube, if you search "La tradición del vaquero en Baja California"

I really like the picture of the vaquero, and "daddy's girl"! :yes:
