México At 70 MPH

While we spent the majority of the summer on the Sea of Cortez, we also made a few road trips back to the states for provisions, parts and other necessary items. There are just some things you can’t find here and you don’t have things shipped here because chances are you’ll never see them. I’m not implying that the Mexicans are corrupt; it’s just a fact and you have to learn to live with it.

We made two trips back to California and one to my cousin’s house in Arizona. Each trip took us through different parts of México. One trip was from Puerto Peñasco through Tecate to San Diego. One was from Puerto Peñasco to Peoria, Arizona and the other was from Santa Rosalía to San Diego.

Each trip revealed different and spectacular landscape that had its own appeal. I would dearly have loved to stop along the way to take pictures but time was always pressing. So, I did the next best thing. I took pictures from the car as we cruised down the highways. Ironically enough I was able to capture some pretty great images this way. All photos and video were taken using my iPhone 6 Plus. I’ve found the camera on it to be pretty nice.

Here’s a gallery of some of my favorites. Hope you enjoy them. (Click on individual pics for larger images)

Until next time,
