Bahía Santa Rosalillita
It was time to start heading towards home, so when I reached pavement
Just north of Guerrero Negro, Highway 1 crosses the 28th parallel, the border between the state of Baja California Sur (South), and Baja California (North).
I had time to camp for one more night, so just before Highway 1 leaves the coast and heads inland at Rosarito, I headed west to investigate a Pacific coast beach. I passed these graves at the abandoned site of Altamira.
This was a pebbly beach bounded by a set of rocks to the south. I took some time to explore the tidepools here, where I found (along with the usual anemones and snails) huge barnacles, and arrays of curious tubeworms.
The next morning, a fantastic sunrise!
The beachside town of Santa Rosalillita
My return trip was uneventful, passing through the farmland and many towns of northwest Baja along Highway 1, including the strip malls and chain stores of southern Ensenada.
