Las Pintas Petroglyphs
Las Pintas are an extensive region of boulders marked by petroglyphs just north of Arroyo San Fernando. I spent hours clambering around photographing any carvings I spotted.
A little cave contained what appeared to be some kind of stone tools for grinding.
The rocks themselves were also interesting — many of which are made up of fossils.
Unfortunately, a little bit of modern graffiti mars the rocks at the "entrance" to this area.
Cactuses and other interesting plants thrive here, often squeezed into sandy pockets in the boulders.
Heading home — more plants spotted on my trip, including flowering yucca.
Beach near El Rosario (El Campito)
Before leaving Baja California, I made one last stop to swim at a beach north
of El Rosario, where Highway 1 again reaches the Pacific coast. The coastal
rocks here had been eroded into a little tidepool cave full of mussels, crabs, and sea
Signs indicated that trash should be placed into trash cans, but these overflowing cans seemed to have no provision for anyone to collect the trash.
Tecate Border Crossing
I left Baja California via the Tecate border crossing, my favorite for its short wait times. I hope to go back soon!
