My Adventure Story
Day 3 - Not a very ambitious day, but our goal for the day was to camp on Bahia Concepcion.
(Not sure what is up with the speed calculations on the map - I'm sure we went faster than .2 miles per hour!)
On the way down we stopped off at Santa Rosalia to get some pesos, and to check out the town a bit. There are two main streets, and the traffic is awful. The town is small and quaint. Darren pointed out the Eiffel designed mission, but I missed it. I'll have to check it out on another trip (oh well, back to Baja).
Stopped in Mulege for lunch and to check out the mission. Had lunch at Scotty's, food was good. Clientele was colorful. More on that later. The mission was very nice and had a lookout next to it that overlooked the entire town. Beautiful place. Mulege looks like a good place to explore more on future trips.
We checked out El Coyote and the next beach down, Buonventura (I think).
El Coyote is well sheltered from the wind, Buonventura is not, so we picked Coyote. The Coyote is crowded with longer term visitors, including a massage therapist and yoga class. We camped right at the campground entrance, had a full beach to ourselves. Very nice, until trying to sleep. There are hills on both ends of the beach, and the truckers used engine brakes all night to slow their trucks coming off the hills. Many in our group didn't get much sleep. We were thinking about staying a second night, but the truckers ended that.
This ended up being our first and only camping night, including freeze dried meals.
Nice place to stay, but the North beach of El Coyote is too loud from the trucks. Maybe the South beach is less noisy. In any case, it is absolutely beautiful there. Be sure to zoom in on the map and check out the color of the water.Day 4
