Nancy & I toured the northern part of Baja during our Christmas break in 1991. Our intention was to pedal south as far as time allowed. We soon discovered, however, that dirty diapers and other trash lined the road in copious amounts, so we headed off the main highway onto dirt roads. Once we left the main road, Baja was delightful! Remote villages, friendly people, and beautiful scenery. Our journey ended with a dramatic flair as we cycled 60 miles to the San Diego airport through pouring rain, and arrived at the airport looking like two drowned rats.
