ARROYO MATOMI 30°29.42', 114°39.99' (NAD27)

One of the longest dry washes one can drive in. From Hwy. 5 to Rancho Matomi is 32.0 miles and 4WD is necessary! The drive begins 10 miles north of Puertecitos (45 miles south of San Felipe).

Elizabeth ('Baja Angel') and I... The smoke tree behind us was in bloom.

Like frosting on a cake, the geology in Arroyo Matomi is fascinating!

Continuing west on the road often used for off road racing... a section that SCORE calls 'The Best of Baja!'. The SCORE San Felipe 250 came this way (going east) about four months earlier.

The canyon closes in as we get closer to the mountains.

Entering the 'Matomi Narrows'... only a few more miles to go!
