Last of Baja

Handful of photos from our last week on Baja. After a few of the hottest/hilliest days of the trip thus far, we were rescued for a surf timeout by our friends Scotty, Marissa and cat, Fang. They graciously shared their home (pictured below) with a coupla' filthy cyclists for a relaxing stint in San Juanico/Scorpion Bay. Although we threatened to move in permanently, they eventually dropped us where they'd found us and a few long days later we pulled into La Paz where we would board an 18-hour ferry to the mainland. 

 4 humans, 2 bikes, 10 bags and a cat. There was a considerable amount of dismantling to make it all fit.
