We're still on the Sea of Cortez at San Buenaventura on Bahía Concepción. Again we are nose to the beach, just a couple of feet from the blue, blue water. Just a nice, kick-back place. We'll decompress.... (From what, you ask...) We hiked with a group up into the Cañón Trinidad to see the pre-Columbian rock paintings. We had fun clambering over the rocks and wading through the streams, thigh deep, to a spectacular setting. The rock paintings themselves are multicolored Cochimí depictions of human figures and wildlife, including fish and sea turtles. A great side trip but sad to think that diseases brought by the Europeans killed so many thousands of the indigenous peoples and that the last Cochimí died in 1865; just over 300 years after Cortés' landing in the New World!
