Got a LATE start...noon ... but Bon is a determined driver and we made it to this fine town. The last time we stayed overnight here was in '77 on our bike trip down the coast and Baja. This time much has changed! The old mine is a museum and we stayed in a motel which once had been the storage buildings for the mine equipment, etc. See photo.


After a huge day of driving Bon got us as far as Encinata and our last O.N. in MX. On the way into town just before the last Military Inspection stop, we were passed by no less than 17! police cars heading south...an accident? a drug incident? Never found out. They were all flashing lights and sirens blaring...hmmm!>
