I did think of Mike on my trip today as there is an 80īs radio station, here in Patagonia in the small town. Carlton, from Texas, joined me to explore the Valdes Peninsula
Talk about desolation, this place reminds me of Baja without the Cacti, in fact is much like our family trip to go whale watching in December, just 10 months ago. Wash-boarded, dirt roads and lots of country. We got up super closes to many whale mothers with their new borns. These are Souther Right Whales and they are huge! After arriving back on shore we grabbed a quick cafe grande, of course and drove out into the wilderness, with promise of wild life. Lots of ranches or estancias out here on the national preserve. We saw Sheep, Cows, Lamas, horses, Elephant Seals, a few snakes, weirdo rodents, seals, and few penguins and a really friendly gray fox. Lots of dusty driving and the truth be told, we have more Elephant seals in California. But one of the best parts was just to get out into the wilderness.
Off topic, as I was waiting to board the plane, I was engaged in some major people watching, only understanding a small portion of the conversations and have confirmed what we all know. That people are people, everywhere in the world. There were kids with parents, grand parents, businessmen, anxious people, mellow people, big, small, fat, thin, old, young, etc
A bit dusty, I arrived back to find I have three Welsh roommate for the night. Need dinner and a shower.
Many memories are coming in. Steve, Mike, myself and Asia had a great trip to baja while Steve was still in school and Amanda was only one (19 years ago, man how time flys) there was lots of tequilla, yelling at a Mormon, fishing and trips to Santa Rosilia and Mulege, and we survived a major wreck after driving 14 hours straight in Tia Juana. Mike was always "the" guy to have on a rode trip. We made a video VHS, I think will watch with Steve upon returning.
