Bahía de las Animas

Bahía de las Animas

There's a lovely northeast-facing beach on the sand spit at See in Google Maps See in Google Earth  28.8190, -113.3590 . The beach is used as the access road for an active fishing camp at the end of this sand bar, so camping isn't totally private.

Mystery Walls

While I was in the area, I took some aerial photos & videos of the Mystery Walls:

Time to Go Home

My next thought was to do some more exploring north of Agua Amarga, but (luckily) I happened to pause and do a quick inspection under the van. The radiator was leaking! And this wasn't just from a loose hose.

Not a good time to go remote!

Baja - Sportsmobile - Radiator Leak

At this point, I decided my van had accumulated too many insults. I had a substandard spare tire, a noisy loose rear brake pad, a detached muffler, a cracked windshield, and now a leaky radiator. I purchased some packets of stop-leak powder back in Bahía de los Angeles. (At 20 pesos each, I splurged and bought two.) I realized it was time to call it quits, and limp 1700 miles home, back to Seattle.
