Baja Bound, Part 9

Ensenada to El Rosario, Mexico

Road with rolling hills and mountains.
Pretty Drive

View out of our truck, meeting a semi truck, RV ahead of us
It is a tight squeeze. Time to fold the side mirror in.
Dave's mechanic was supposed to install new shocks this morning, but he never showed up.

Apparently he had called someone and left a message?

We are late leaving at around 10 am. Direction south towards Mulege is in the GPS.

We will not make it there for a few days but we are working on it.

Our goal for today it Catavina. We may not make it there since we had a late start and it is pitch black at 6 pm.

Apparently you do not want to be on the road at dark, we have been told.

The drive is nice and interesting. Anders got really tired driving behind the two slower RV's ahead of us.
The narrow roads and the Mexican style of driving and passing takes a bit of getting use to.

Green houses form several miles along the road.
Miles and miles of green houses.

 Small Mexican Town
The towns do not look like they are getting much of the profits.
The Valle St. Thomas is quite pretty. In the Valle de San Quintin they grow tons of vegetables and fruits.

For example we often eat strawberries and raspberries from "Driscol" in Canada. Well, it is here they grow them.

Miles and miles of mesh covered green houses line the road as we drive along.

A bit further along all kinds of vegetables are grown. Huge companies operate here.

Unfortunately it looks like not much of the profits are passed along to the local people. The small towns look poor.

We arrive in El Rosario around 4 pm, we fuel up and decide we should stay the night.

We check into the Baja Cactus Motel. Baja Cactus may not look like a lot from the outside but it is great, a bit rustic, but we loved it, and the price is right.

Our room, great.

The owners of the gas station next door is the same owner as the motel. Nice to see some of the local people getting ahead.

We clean up and go out for supper at Mama Espinoza. Great food and Margaritas.

Early to bed after a bit of a tense day of driving.
