Along The Way

I don’t have any pictures of the really exciting parts of the 1500 mile drive from the tip of the Baja peninsula to our other home on the Russian River, Monte Rio, CA. There was getting lost in Ensenada, almost getting smashed by a fire truck, nearly going out of control trying to avoid killing a dog, driving through thousands of runners limbering up for a 5K run, and 17 hours of driving on performance enhancing (but legal) substances to arrive home at midnight 2/24/14. But I do have a random assortment of views captured along the way.
Here’s a kind of blurry shot of a truly spectacular moonrise experienced on our last day at the Cerritos Beach in Pescadero before we left.

We spent our first night on the road in Loreto. Here are some scenes from our walkabout before settling in at our motel.

The next day we made it to Santa Rosalia where strange mouldering remnants of a defunct copper mine provide a curious contrast to the beauties of this coastal town.

We decided to cross the border at Tecate. The last time we crossed here we had one car in front of us and the whole process took about ten minutes. Evidently the secret is out about Tecate. This time we were at the end of a quarter mile line with vendors, steep hills and a ninety minute wait. Here is a scene featuring Mr. Burpomr.burpo at the border‘s (look in the background).
