Mar 12, 2016 - Bahia de los Angeles, Baja, Mexico

Trip is now more than half over and we are headed north again. We stopped on the Sea of Cortez at the city of Bahia de los Angeles. We dry camped on the beach. We were surpised with some 15 amp power (no breakers so who know what they could draw). Most of decided to go out on boats and do some touring of the many islands for bird watching. It turner out to be Fin Whale watching. We saw many Fin Whales up close feeding. Unlike the Gray Whales, these guys are interesting in feeding and not human contact. But they didn't shy away either. Fin...

Mar 14, 2008 - The Sea Of Cortez One Final Time

Travelling to the Sea Of Cortez, Bahia De Los Angeles is a big detour off Hwy 1 about halfway up the so-called gas gap. The road to the coast is relatively new and the scenery is beautiful. Besides the vast dry lake and the colourful arroyos with their Spring desert flowers, the key feature for much of this drive down to the sea is the whimsical Boojum tree. ‘Giant upside down carrot’ only begins to describe this strange cactus tree. And there is no other place on the planet that these trees can be found. Along with the other three couples,...

Our Adventure

Jan 24, 2008 - Bahia de Los Angeles - Sand, Sun and Shimmer

To the east coast of the Baja we wound, out of the low desert, over the mountains again, to the sandy deserted beaches of Bahia de Los Angeles. This Bay of the Angels is a glorious spot with clear blue waters, empty beaches, hummingbirds, yakking gulls, fishing Reddish Egrets, Long-necked Curlews, Marbled Godwits, and hunting Great Blue Herons. Behind us and across the bay, mist-topped mountains that glowed in the sun added drama to this peaceful setting. The islands in the bay are the tops of mountains raised up by the clashing of plates...

Jan 21, 2008 - El Rosario to Bahia de Los Angeles

A brisk morning with clear skies once again. The leg between El Rosario and Gurrero Negro, our planned stop was nearly 400 km. Sections of Mexico 1 are quite slow so we needed to focus on making some distance today. The towns along this stretch are sparse with limited services such as motels. The scenery was desert all day but it is amazing just how much such a landscape can vary. The terrain itself changed regularly from rolling hills and craggy mountains to vast flat lands. The vegetation also kept changing. There were areas that where...

Dec 17, 2007 - Bahia de los angeles

Monday December 17...9:15pm Up early again this morning. It was going to be about an hour drive to the turnoff towards Bahia de los angeles, a little rustic beach community that apparently has abundant sea life and nice scenery. The road is mostly flat in the section, and we make pretty good time. Speed limit is only 80km/h, and that's the speed we feel safe and comfortable doing. The locals and the truck drivers totally ignore the speed limits as well as most other road signs. There is a reason there are so many roadside crosses and...
