El Rosario to Santa Rosalia
5OCT11 - We departed El Rosario at 08:40 on our way to Santa Rosalia, B.C., Mexico. The temperature was 60 degrees but warmed to 83 crossing the desert. Stopped for lunch at Guerro Negro. Had a fantastic meal of abalone.
Some wonderful twisties crossing over to the Sea of Cortez. Photos can't do it justice. Three military checkpoints but they just wave motorcycles through.
Staying at the Las Castias Motel just south of town. Rode back to town for dinner. Dave spotted two bikes with Colorado plates so we stopped at that restaurant to eat. Met two brothers from Denver, Steve and Tom Flint. They're down here planing in the dirt on their 650s and were waiting to take the ferry to mainland Mexico.
It was a 361 mile day. Great riding all the way.
Tomorrow it's off to La Paz where we catch the ferry on Friday to Topolobampo.
