This one is correct: (4) Old jail at Las Flores south of LA Bay

#3 is not in San Borja mission.
#10 is Hwy. 5 but not between those two places.

Can you name the arroyo? A mission is on it just a few miles west.

And actually pretty close to the Pinos Pemex
which puts it much further north of Coco than I remember
I do remember driving by the bridge pilings while under construction

Correct! There is a roadside rest area and a fancy monument on the north side of the arroyo... which they are calling Las Arrastras.

Hints needed??

Incorrect Guesses were made for #3 & #10. #10 has been answered, So, #3 was guessed to be inside the San Borja mission church.

#3 is indeed inside a mission church, just not San Borja.

There are 7 other mission churches not in ruins:

Santa Gertrudis
San Ignacio
Mulegé
Comondú
Loreto
San Javier
and
San Luis Gonzaga.

The photo was taken in ONE of those! ;)

The next hints:

Photos #2 and #6 are both in the state of Baja California and both at mining centers. The #2 photo was from 2005 and in 2017, a new ranch was on the site.

This should be easy!

Nomads, RnR has guessed three correctly. Others have each guessed one correctly.

Still not answered:

#2
#3
and
#6

HINTS were provided in the previous post.

DO you need more help? ;)

Mining related, eh? I do not recognize those places so will take a guess:
2: Smelter at San Fernando
6: Mill foundation at Agua Amarga
If no one guesses correctly please post the locations, thanks

Hi Ric, of course I will reveal the locations... eventually!

#2 is not San Fernando (copper mine)... I was only there once in 2000. Photos (a couple, not hi res) are on my website. However... a new hint is this photo is of another copper mine ruin and not that far away. A new ranch is on the site when I drove by in 2017. The photo was taken in 2005 during a Baja Nomad group day tour.

#6 is not Agua Amarga, but I do remember when there were ruins still there on my earlier trips to L.A. Bay. If it helps, #6 and one other of the ten photos were taken at the same place. :yes:
