Summer & Autumn rains are always welcomed after a dry Winter and Spring on the East Cape. As a result of the summer rains, stunning local waterfalls fill with much-needed water. While temperatures also become ideal. In addition, the showers leave in its wake a blanket of blooming green and splashes of color across the usual arid landscape.
Firstly, the hike started at Rancho Sol de Mayo, owned and operated by ranchero, Don Priscilliano de la Peña. The ranch, located within the Sierra de la Laguna park, is a Baja treasure. In fact, Rancho de Sol de Mayo has been family-owned and operated for more than 7 generations! Filled with charm, the ranch is an up-close glimpse into Baja life.
Furthermore, the group made the short hike from the ranch to the Sol de Mayo waterfalls located in the Cañon de la Zora (Fox Canyon). The group experienced authentic Baja through the indigenous flora and fauna. This includes barrel cactus, sahuaro, and much more.
