On our fourth day we headed to San Carlos. The road was terrible. Here Justin is driving through knee deep Baja moon dust. By the time we arrived it was in everything we had with us.

While we were there the waves got from about waste high to head high.

On our way out Justin got a flat tire. This was just the first of many problems that would eventually cut his trip short.

You can also see the Cirro tree. This is a tree that only grows in Baja.

By the time we reached the main road Justin's truck had lost most of it's power, and could only stumble down the road.  We talked to two mechanics in El Rosario. They checked basic stuff and told us to head north to the larger town of San Quitin to see if we could find a mechanic with a computer. That night we stayed on the dunes outside San quitin at Fidel's paid camp ground.

Day 7 I parted ways with Justin. The mechanic in San Quitin said it would be to big a job and that he needed to head norht to Ensenada. I hope justin made it.  I have not been in contact with him since. That night I spent the first night by myself in the desert in the beautiful Catavina Boulder fields.

I belive this is called the Cholla cactus. My dog Hunter got one of these stuck in his foot and he tried to pull it out with his mouth. I had to pull prt of it out of his foot and part of it out of his tounge. I then had to pull a bunch of barbs out of his mouth. It was very painful for him, but he is just fine now.

Hunter's water bowl was taken over by thirsty bees. They drank the whole thing dry in about two hours.
