Armed with a satellite image provided by Corky 'Sharksbaja'
Kuhlman, we were anxious! Corky saw a strange line in a satellite image and
asked me if it could be the wall I was seeking.
The first opportunitey to go to Baja was New Year's
In Choral Pepper's magazine and book, the first unusual things reported, causing them to investigate, was a dam and a scraggly date palm.
2009: We find a rock and earth dam which would create a
reservoir at the base of the lava mesa. A large ditch along this side of the
mesa acts as a canal to bring rain water to the reservoir.
We were not certain of what the berm was as seen from the
road. However, it was clear that this was a reservoir once we looked close.
I climbed up a bit of the mesa for a higher view of the dam
"... a scraggly date palm standing alone. Usually they
grow in groves..."
