When we started out in the morning our goal was to arrive in Bahia de los Angeles but the wind picked up and we decided to hole up in Cativina for the night. We stayed at St. Envois
Campground which looks like the set of an old Clint Eastwood western. Cativina is in the middle of Baja and beautiful desert country. We had some home made burritos at the little cafe and waited for the wind to calm down. Noah and I explored the desert rock formations jumping from rock to rock. A dramatic sunset made for some great photo opportunities (see below).
The campground was basically a large dirt area with a few trees for shade. There are not facilities of any kind here. Camping was $100 pesos or $5 USD per night. It is off the main highway so you don’t have to listen to vehicle traffic. Horses free roamed around the property and it was a short walk to explore the desert. I had the whistle from the film Fist Full of Dollars stuck in my head throughout our stay.
