Heading Down Baja

The next day, we left San Quentin, and continued down to where the whales are in Guerrero Negro. We made a couple of stops along the way.

Our first stop was to see the kinds of cactus that grow here in Baja.

Of course I was distracted by the flowers -

And a Red-Tailed Hawk flying overhead.

I really loved the Boojum, a member of the ocotillo family.

And the largest cactus was the Cardon. It looks similar to a saguaro, but the arms branch out closer to the ground. It's the tallest cactus species in the world.

We even got to see a Crested Cardon!

And we saw some Bearded Cactus, or Old Man Cactus.

And we made another stop for a short hike up to a cave to see some cave paintings.

Really cool!

Next up - WHALES!

  1. Very cool ... I still need to plan a desert trip to see it in bloom. Our timing is always off.


I love comments!
