We are currently on another long distance hike, and the third leg of our "triple crown", the Continental Divide Trail (the "CDT"). Come along with us if you can - if not in person then by following our grand adventure via our "posts from the trail".  Check out our Flickr Photos, which we'll update periodically, and see it through our eyes!

Our Credo...

"Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mulege on the Rebound

Greetings from Mulege!

Which may sound like deja vu, all over again. We are back in Mulege, on our return north, migrating at about the same pace as the gray whales, or around 1,000 miles every week or so.

We had a great time in the “southern cape” area. An interesting hike into the Sierra Laguna, in search of a lush meadow at 6,000 foot elevation. The meadow proved to be too elusive and the result was a very dry afternoon and evening hike back into a canyon with water. A touch of how harsh this environment can truly be.

After a relaxing couple of days on the East Cape, camping, snorkeling and drinking beer we headed back to try again for a paddle around Isla Espiratu Santo. This time the winds cooperated and we were able to cross over the 4 mile open water channel to the island with no problems. Espiratu Santo is a remarkable island. Southeastern Utah’s red rock country meets the ocean. Its still wild and untamed despite its popularity as a Kayaking destination.

Gradually moving north, we stopped to savor the quiet, emerald green waters of Bahia Concepcion. Great paddling, snorkeling and bird watching made up for the fact that the road is so close by the beach.

Tomorrow we head out to Canon San Pablo to spend three days hiking into as area known for its outstanding rock art. Gardiner cave and possibly a couple of others are on the itinerary.

There’s so much more to tell, but the internet shop closes in 5 minutes, so I am rushing now to just be able to end this here. We hope to send one more message before we leave Baja. Take care all………

Phil and Deb
