In Part 2 of the month I rode in to and down the Baja peninsula all the way to La Paz, stopping in San Felipe, San Ignacio and Loreto in states Baja California and Baja California Sur (BCS). And at the end of the month I began a month long stay in La Paz which had been on my list for a long time. Be sure to check out November 2022!
