Baja III

We make the short (110 miles) ride from Guerrero Negro to Mulege which is the turn-around point for this ride.

On the way we stop at San Ignacio to see the Mission.

I don't think I'd like that sand chunk hanging over my house...

The Sea of Cortez.

Gustav Eiffel designed the "Church of Santa Barbara" . It was bought disassembled in France, and brought to Santa Rosalia in 1897
These two couples were also touring Baja together, we kept running into them at the sights. Once when they we leaving the man with the beard rolled down his window and yelled, "see you at the next place!"
Each time we met it seemed as if we were seeing old friends again.

Attractive churches dot the land.

We rode to Cueva del Raton, where you can see some amazing rock art. This is thought to be one of the most important sites in the world. There are over 1500 drawings in this area. We only were able to visit this one site.

6 miles of dirt round trip, this is one of the best sections, it was very steep for most of the ride.

We finished up a great day of riding , then it was back to Guerrero Negro to spend the night. Tomorrow we'll ride to San Quintin.
