The next morning, Terry had a wonderful breakfast spread ready for us.
On our way out, we encountered this large skeleton in San Ignacio.
The R11S doesn’t have enough of a fuel range to make it past Catavina, so I decided to use up the extra gas I had stored.
When we were at dinner last night, a few other guests suggested that Vy and I should check out the Painted Caves of Catavina.
We were immediately greeted with some interesting plant life.
Hiking up to the painted caves.
The entrance to the caves. The UC Davis Botany Club was also up here on this day.
Vy noticed this sign – don’t throw ninja stars!
Leaving Baja California Sur and heading north!
I managed to accidentally go the wrong way on a one way road, but it gave us a close up of a gray whale skeleton.
At one point, I stood up to stretch my legs and the map we were storing in my jacket’s rear see-through pocket flew out. Thankfully, Vy was able to track it down at the side of the road.
You always have to be vigilant for wildlife.
Who needs guardrails?
Some wildlife that’s a bit more…stationary.
Stopped at Mama Espinoza’s in El Rosario again. We had enough daylight to make it 35 miles further north to San Quintin, but not much more than that.
In the parking lot, I saw that someone from Washington had trailered a R1200GS.
We caught up with some of the guests in San Ignacio at Mama Espinoza’s!
I hated my first meal (chicken enchiladas) here, but the lobster burritos were some of the tastiest things I’ve had in recent memory.
The usual signage for a military checkpoint.
The sun sets on our 2nd day of travel back up north.
We were recommended this hotel by guests in San Ignacio. Plain but nice, and that’s all we needed.
