2016 vs. 1966


It is always fun to discover you took a photo where someone 50 years ago also did!

In this case, that someone was Erle Stanley Gardner in 1966, over on the Concepción Peninsula. The photo is in his 1967 book, Off the Beaten Track in Baja.

2016:


1966:


Almost the only difference I notice is I took the photo about twenty feet further from the water and the tide was higher in my photo. The gravel ridge and driftwood, indicating the high-tide-line, looks the same in both images.

I camped on that very beach last Nov. Was a great camp spot! There was a fairly fresh big dead sea turtle on shore.

This picture is looking back to where you are standing for your picture (or maybe it's from where you are standing looking the other way?)

On the Sea of Cortez, but not Baja. The entrance to the harbor at San Carlos, Sonora. About 80 miles across the SoC from Santa Rosalia.

Nomad Hook's stomping ground.

I also happened to be there just before Thanksgiving! I did not camp there, it was just one of the spots I checked out on a ten day "drive about".

Did you happen to notice an old guy in an Isuzu Trooper with a large, long legged, dark brown dog?




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!

Nope, didn't see anyone else on the peninsula when I was there.
