Nice video. Toward the end, after Mikes there is a shot with a footbridge crossing the stream.
I have never seen that- where is it?

Around Minute 8:30 seems to be the Mike's stream crossing (in Mike's campground), but at Minute 8:45 what would seem to be the same stream but with a suspension footbridge and picnic tables and cabins?? Is that also at Mike's now or another place? I was last through Mike's in 2005.

Edit: I have messaged someone I think was in that group to ask.

Edit 2: He said it is near Ojos Negros. Will send me the map pin...

Edit 3: I found it after he sent a general area map... On the Compadre Trail road: 31° 58.326'N, 116° 8.094'W appears to be the suspension bridge.

Spelling police alert!


In the closing credits, i saw that Enscenada was spelled with a "c" in it.

I have never traveled with a group that large. I suppose I should try it some time, but keeping it simple works for me and my 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!

Having traveled with or led groups, I would naturally agree that 'too big' could be a problem with stragglers or just camping locations, etc. Cameron's Trail of Missions tours stay at hotels or places like Solosports (which has tent accommodations). It is the people that make large groups work out... people who love Baja or love the adventure and will follow the leader's instructions.

Warnout does the weekly day trips out from San Felipe with several vehicles and that works out well, it seems.

I think the foot bridge is at the old campground near the end of compadre trail, where you cross the river? I haven't seen the bridge but I've been past that camp ground many times.
If you stay right it would go into Ojos Negros, left takes you past camp ground and out to hwy 3.
