    Hi Jessica,

    Has Journey Mexico been to San Felipe, Baja California? Located in Mulege, approximately 50 miles from the center of San Felipe dwell thousands of man-made ancient cave paintings. Arrangements of rock art in images of men, women, and animals are drawn to human-scale and colored with red, brown, and yellow hues. These paintings tell the story of the first settlers who journeyed through the peninsula and settled in Baja.

    Also, 20 minutes south of San Felipe is the Valle de los Sahuaros (Valley of the Giants). This natural reserve is home to the world’s largest cactus, the Cardon Cactus. The Valley of the Giants has been described by visitors as the cactus forest of the Mexican desert and the equivalent to the California Redwoods. Pictures are a must! The scenery is spectacular and the sheer size of the cacti is hard to believe without photos for evidence. Some loom up to 70 feet and are said to live to over 150 years. You could do both over a weekend. Great experiences.
