No Nonsense Nourishment

Much of Baja's terrain is something out of a live-action Flintstones movie. Bedrock litters the desert floor as if a once great mountain had succumbed to even greater pressures and combusted.

Our first night of sleep back in the teardrop was a deep and restful one, something I was thankful for with the coming pain I was sure to receive this afternoon. You see, in a lapse of judgment I had agreed to take lessons in surfing—a sport in which you greatly benefit from small stature, a great sense of balance, and time and practice. I had none of these, and was definitely in trouble. We ate a quick breakfast of… read more »
