Driving to Potrero through Baja

We decided to drive to Potrero through Baja and take the ferry over to Mazatlan.  This was a great choice.  Driving through Texas is never very fun, and even the US side of the border feels a little sketchy taking interstate 10 which follows the US Mexican border for a long way.  But besides just being a nicer drive this was a trip I had always wanted to make, and there is incredible surfing the way down.

Here I finally get to relax in Mexico with a coco by the beach after the craziness of Tijuana.

 We visited Orlando in Ensenada.  I had some of the best uncrowded surfing ever while here.  I want to come back for a surfing climbing combination trip, as Orlando told us there is some good climbing near by and Ensenada is the closest large town to El Trono Blanco.
 Here is a beautiful sunset seen from Orlando's house

 Trying to surf at Punta San Carlos, but there was no swell yet so we head south.

 But we did get to see the biggest cactus's ever!
