Here I am, but just where, exactly? Good Job Nomads!


1: (answered by geoffff: Km. 105 south of San Quintín):

Making this a Guess Where in Baja is a bit silly, right? There are many places with the same kilometer markers, as there are different highways or in the case of Highway 1, about 8 separate kilometer sections. Also, just because it says Mexico #1, doesn't make it so! LOL

2: (answered by advrider: Observatory Road)

3: (answered by geoffff: just south of Bahía Concepción, 71 kms north of Loreto)

4: (answered by RnR: L.A. Bay junction/ Parador Punta Prieta)

5: (answered by RnR: San Quintín area)

6: (answered by TMW: Los Martires/ San Juan de Dios access road)

7: (answered by RnR: El Rosario)

8: (answered by geoffff: Bahía Tortugas road at Bahía Asunción junction):

9 (answered by geoffff: Km. 5 north of San Juanico):

10: (answered by RnR: North from La Paz)

100% Correct!
El Cien (The 100) is northbound from La Paz, 92 kilometers from the Dove of Peace or Whale Tail monument (which is at Km. 8).

OK, hints:

#1 NOT in Baja Sur, 105 kms from a bay with an old mill.

#3 NOT in Baja Norte, driving north from the first successful mission.

#8 NOT on Highway 1. At a junction of paved roads to fishing towns.

#9 A popular surf 'bay' with a name that 'stings' is 3 miles away.
