We left Gurrero Negro and drove through Viscaino desert.



The road is now paved all the way to Bahia Assuncion.

Next day, we check out Santa Rosalia. The town is busy with preparation for the big Day of Death celebration.







Later afternoon, we visit my friend at San Bruno.

Today morning we said good bye to my friend in Bruma de San Bruno.
We went for the microwave tower station near by.



That was the first drop of the day.



The road was paved with stones. Kinda tricky for this noob, but Neil helped me out.

The view from the top was spectacular.







And we are on our way to La Purisma. But wr stop by at Mulege.
The last hurracan did some damage to the town.
At the end of town, on ocean front we grab some coffee at El Patron.
We met Yolanda and her sister Lily. They are wonderful ladies.





On beautiful Mulege river.



It eas sad to see the damage, but locals will bounce back. They are resillient people.

On our way to La Purisma, we stop by at Playa Santispac.





After quick dip into the Sea of Cortez, we move on.

The road to La Purisma turn out to be mucho malo.



With day light running out, we made wise decision to quit while we still can.

We made it to Loreto and found decent motel with fair rate. It was 350 peso for dos perspna, but begged for 300. It worked.

we checked out from the motel, and decided to have breakfast at the zona de historica. We found a nice restaurant.



Loreto has really nice zocalo, and an impressive old mission.





Behind the mission, we cheked out a really charming hostel.







I have been to many hostels, but this place tops the list.



So we decided to stay.

Now the rest of the Loreto.









We met a local artist named Alex. He is originally from Gualalajara, but he is where he is more needed.

We liked the place so much we decided to chill at Loreto bit longer.

This morning I was invited to the resort nrar here to check out.

Villa la palma was a wobderful resprt in exquisit location.







They are working very hard to sell me this piece of paradise.



At the end, all I took from them wete few pictures.



When I came back to my humble place, this guy showed up. Here is Oscar with Abel, the owner.



He has been riding for 2 years.









Found this beutiful hotel at the center.





The ceiling of the lobby....



And the other side of the ceiling.



Beutiful room.



Hallway...



Rooftop patio...



And the rest of Loreto.

I stumbled upon the Posada de Las Flores during a Baja trip at the turn of the century (December 2000.) Your photos bring back fond memories. Looks like the place has changed very little in the 12 years since my friends and I enjoyed a few cervezas on the terrace near that beautiful rooftop pool. Thanks for the memories!

We met fellow DR650 traveller name Mike at Loreto.
We rode to La Paz togethet. The
ride was ordinary but the city itself is very interesting. I saw the most beautiful girl here in La Paz. I didnt take a photo, you just have to trust me.
After walk to the Mecado, we came back to the hotel we are staying.
Here is Mike chilling.



Hotel Yeneka, the owner claims the title of arte museo hotel.



Secure parking.
