We didn't get far from the hwy, maybe two miles, didn't get to the long snaky slot that cuts into those mountains, which is easy to see on Google Earth.

Where we stopped was a decent 40 ft steep cliff with pockets.

In my imagination that entire gorge is undercut, waterscoured, pocketed basalt for miles. Pools and palm groves too.

Catavina season is long past right about now. I have seen horrifying amounts of tiny black flies there this time of year - The Catavina Fly Festival in full swing

December through March is real nice, and just happens to be northwest swell season...

April sounds good to me. Maybe a little late, but that's when I have the time.Ever check out the crags to the S.W.? It looks like some bigger stuff way off in the distance.

That "bigger stuff" is invariably crumbling shale death-cliffs. Meh.

A ways south of Catavina, but Baja none the less.

I know that spot jefe, we followed a little road all the way out to those peaks on the skyline. One was covered with white boulders, the other with dark, almost black boulders. Sean Myles noted it looked like two ancient armies about to do battle but turned to stone...


Always worth it to turn off the highway and follow your nose down there.

cool.

If I'm correct, this is just a few miles into close to a hundred of dirt.

Haven't been down since Dan boy went to heaven. Just talking today with the guys were I work (Nomad's) and people are still saying how dangerous Mexico is right now.

Is It? If you get thru TJ and Ensenada would it be ok. Naturally you have to be aware as in years past. I miss Mexico.....

Word is it's still the same, as in the way it always was, only less gringos down there because of the rumors of which you speak.

Only one way to find out...
