Baja Mexico Trip 2015-2016. Part 11


Ciudad Constitución to Rancho Verde and onward to Los Barriles


It is the 13th of December 2015 and we have a leisurely morning with a nice breakfast. We break camp, pack up and get the truck and trailer ready for the next trip.

Once we are packed, we go over our usual trip inspection to make sure all is ready and all the lights work as they should.

This morning many of the streets in Ciudad Constitución are closed off by Police. We realise there is some kind of race happening.

It is beautiful sunshine as we motor out of town towards Rancho Verde and Los Barriles. The road is great and absolutely straight up till Santa Rita.

In Las Pocitas they have built a brand new Pem-X gas station and Oxo store. Two years ago this was only a two building town, with a lovely older man selling odds and ends. Now it even has a coffee shop.

Lots of curves and mountain passes.

We drive around and through La Paz with not too much traffic.


You really have to watch for the stop signs in this town. Not easy to see in many places.


Once we get closer to El Triunfo and San Antonio the narrow road winds over mountains through lots of steep curves.


Liz is a bit uncomfortable, but all goes well and the truck gets a good workout.


We stop and spend the rest of the day and night at Rancho Verde RV Haven at km 142.5 or 32 km before Los Barriles.


This very well maintained RV Park is way up in the mountain, just off the highway.


There is lots of room to turn around inside the park. I believe this is still a working ranch.


There is water only available, so you have to be self sufficient otherwise.


This is of course no problem for us with the solar panels and even a generator as a back up.


We really like this RV Park, it is peaceful and beautiful.

We were the only guests here which is really surprising since it is so nice up here with all kinds of hiking trails.


We have a really good sleep and wake up to a cool morning; it's the 14th of December which is our anniversary. Happy Anniversary Darling!


I cook up some eggs and bacon as the sun comes up, soon it starts dripping from the roof gutters. We must have had a bit of frost over night.


After breakfast we go for a nice hike around the Ranch, just a wonderful area to hike in.


After the hike I head down to the ranch house to see if we could pay, nobody was able to collect money yesterday.


This time I had better luck, and I paid our dues.


We break camp. We only have a short drive today to Los Barriles.


Once in Los Barriles we check into East Cape RV Park. It is located on a street called "20th of Novembre".


This is wonderful park with all the amenities and with large RV sites.


More on this RV Park and Los Barriles in our next blog post.


Here are some more pictures from this part of our trip.


Cheers,

Anders and Liz
