San Felipe to Puertecitos
Heading east, I encountered the first signs of San Felipe about 10 miles out of town, where enormous amounts of trash suddenly appeared alongside the road. Apparently, the San Felipe residents use this road as a dump. Returning to pavement, I filled up my tank at this self-serve Pemex station, which featured a market cleverly named "7 Lleven."
In San Felipe, I walked around town, and climbed the hill to the chapel at the south side of town to
see the panoramic view.
Traveling farther south of San Felipe, the pavement slowly degrades, until it becomes entirely gravel at Puertecitos. Puertecitos has a couple little stores, a closed Pemex gas station, and many American expatriates living in ramshackle houses.
