Baja, Mexico 1997
Our first kayaking trip that took us out of the country. Wonderful scenery, NOLS-trained leaders, and a great group made getting stranded on a rock beach for two nights less frustrating. We did gain great stories, like waking up in the night on the rock beach as a fierce wind roared through the arroyo and started to carry our tent and all our belongings to the water! The light tent looked like a ghost until we woke up enough to realize the urgency of claiming it and weighing it down! Learning to poop on a rock and fling it far into the ocean [no bacteria on the rock beaches to break it down] proved a doable challenge. Altogether a great adventure!
