April 28, 1998
I was planning a trip with my wife and son (6 year old) from La
Paz to Bahía de Los Angeles, and explored the Internet to
find something useful. I found your pages on Baja California
and printed some of the material that I used during the travel.
We traveled from 7 to 16 of April, part of the Semana Santa and
the week after.
The road was quite good from La Paz up to Guerrero Negro. Some
people were actually working at different spots, from the Ligui
area to the north of Santa Rosalia. Some parts were repaved and
others were cleaned out from bushes growing at the edge of the
road. Potholes were found just starting at the road in the
northern state of B.C.. The worst part was that just before the
road to Bahía de Los Angeles. The road to Bahía
was also in relatively bad condition, but not a big problem.
The desert along that road was just great with a lot of flowers
and animal life.
I found probably the last blue whales of the season in the
Loreto area, feeding very close to the Coronado Island. The El
Niño effects were not apparently so evident in all the
places I visited (Santa Rosalia coast, Bahía de Los
Angeles, Bahía de Las Animas), which means I did not find
an unusual number of marine birds or mammals, maybe because the
worst part seemed to have passed. I stayed at the Arquelon camp
with my friends Toño and Bety Resendiz, during several
windy but beautiful days.
