9-05 Labor Day Weekend: Pacific side to Cortez side via Mike's Sky Rancho

Pacific Coast near San Quintin

After some breakfast burritos at Laura's Wet Buzzard Bar
(Gypsy's RV Camp, Cielito Lindo), Elizabeth and I drove
up the flat sand beach until she spotted sand dollars!

Once found easily in San Diego, now a drive into Baja is
required for easy sand dollar hunting... (take only photos/ leave only footprints)

We leave Mexico Highway 1 onto the now (half way up) paved
road that climbs 9,000 feet in 62 miles to the National Observatory at the
top of the Sierra San Pedro Martir. We go 30 miles on it before turning north...
