Over 25 years ago, I first visited the UNESCO World Heritage cave paintings of the Sierra San Francisco mountains in central Baja. It has remained one of my favorite places to go, not only for the great murals, some over 150 meters in length (see photo above by William Frej), but also for the experience of spending time with a gentle people in an almost sustainable culture deep in the mountains ~ the Californios.
I have taken small groups to see these spectacular pictographs several times over the last eight years, and have always wanted to see more. This coming March, I was fortunate to receive special permission to go deeper into the canyons and spend two additional days exploring some of the more protected, and little visited sites. This was not an adventure for couch potatoes! We rode mules for longer days to reach these sites, and camped for a total of five nights, rather than three, as we usually do. It was an adventure few ever get a chance to experience, and a real gift we will always remember. So much so, that some of us cannot wait to do it again and explore some of the really remote, and little visited sites. This November we will be in the canyons 7 nights/8 days. Space is limited; I can only take 6 people with me.
