    Later that morning...

    It is low tide and I am standing at the high tide line!

    The upper Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) has one of the world's
    greatest tides. In just a few hours, the water will be back up.

    The entire beach is ours to enjoy, not a soul in sight!

    Being an island that requires low tide and four wheel drive
    to get to, does help keep the crowds away! This is our camp in the dunes.

    Until next time, have a great adventure yourself!

    So, this is the place I do most of my 4 wheeling (Baja) and why I have a 4WD vehicle... The Tacoma is the best of all of them!
