Next… Wild Bill’s photos at Baja’s observatory.

Wild Bill and his daughter, Mary. They are at the astronomers living quarters, Observatorio San Pedro Mártir. May, 2001

Inside the living quarters at 9,000 feet elevation, is Mary.

The view from the observatory is breathtaking! On a clear day you can see Sonora and Arizona!

Here’s ‘Baja Dave’ and buddies, exploring Baja’s high country.
