but the spring is not on the travel route

Las Palomas (now called Codornices)

upload image to link

You can make out the route from the water to there. Easiest if you work back from Palomas.

I can only fill in what I see on the sat images

I have some promising traces between Rancho El Sauce and Laguna El Caporal
but nothing from Salado to El Caporal - all trails there are radiating out from Laguna Chapala

Laguna El Caporal

Guys, I have been standing back hoping to see some perfecting of the map Harald put out... I hope you don't give up!

We are certain of where Codornices is and were Agua Leon is.

Also, I am exchanging data with the Arce clan, one branch is the family owns that ranch and it has been there over 100 years.

Salomé Arce Villavicencio (daughter of Marcelino Arce & Cleofas Villavicencio), was born there. She was Eliodoro's (the prospector we have been talking about) aunt. Salomé married Jesús Zúñiga. Her grandchildren are adults on the Internet today.
The land remains in the hands of that family today.

Los Codornices and San Antonio are the same place, even the family uses both names (I will try and find out that story). 'geoffff' was there as well. Just an adobe ruin by a giant eucalyptus tree: 29.1959, -114.3170

Looking for Codornices on the San Antonio route:
Yes “Los Codornices and San Antonio are the same place.”
According to the Almanac they are in the same place. The new Atlas shows just San Antonio.
The Almanac shows a Codornices further west on the San Antonio route and the new Atlas calls that place Los Palomas.
Look at 29 1.617, -114 32.137 just see a blur with a bunch of roads, but a couple of building a bit north.
The largest ranch with unknown name along that route is at 20 8.767, -114 20.619
Google Earth shows Codornices as an area at 29 8.767, -114 21.155. It is along a major wash.

Palomas=Doves
Codornices=Quail

Anyone can put a name on the map but if you talk to the people who own or live at these places, you may learn more.

My connections with the Arce clan keeps growing and I am editing the Eliodoro Arce family tree almost daily. They are very open to sharing the family history and that gives us history and map fans a great insight to these places. I will ask them about these places... soon. Still working on translating their messages and applying the data into the family tree. It is all under construction so if you don't mind a rough look, go to the bottom of the Eliodoro page. www.vivabaja.com/eliodoro

Here is what I have (so far) on the family who owns Rancho (Los) Codornices/ San Antonio:

Salomé Arce Villavicencio [Los Codornices/ San Antonio]; Primitivo's sister hermana/ Eliodoro's aunt tía) & Jesús Zúñiga >> Chacha Margarita, Celia Nelo, José María, Teodora ('Toña') Zúñiga Arce & Pilar Cota >> t-1) María Cota Zúñiga & Manuel Ruelas >> Manuel Ruelas Cota. t-2) Teodoro Estrada Zúñiga.

whenever a new topic comes up I use the opportunity to re-visit the area
do some updates if needed (lotsa new roads over the last few years!)

connected to this topic I found a new airstrip in the middle of nowhere
some new roads around it
maybe mining

That's just up the arroyo from La Miseria (now abandoned and roofless) where you can still see the two hot tubs.

That first one has already been ditched by the army.

Are we not getting a bit off topic with gps waypoints for drug-runner runways? :lol:

Seriously Harald, a thread just on your drug runway discoveries would be huge!

The next stop on Goldbaum after Las Palomas is San Jose. That is another San Jose de Las Palomas. Apparently the newer location of the same ranch.
The next section of the map, San Jose to San Julio, is now followed by a road so I guess the question is which locations on the road have water near the surface and which have deeper drilled wells.

Fun with Maps!

On the Gulick map, below: Cerro Blanco (Onyx), El Pedregoso, San José, Las Palomas (at the bottom).



Above is the 1962 Howard Gulick/ Lower California Guidebook Map, which was researched from 1958 to 1961... and as Harald stated, they are the first accurate road maps of Baja. His previous two guidebook editions (1956 & 1958) did not include the roads to the Pacific (Seven Sisters) Coast.

At roughly the same area as the Gulick map above:
