Todays location also seems to have name Vizcaino, though that name also seems to apply to a broader region.
Today turned out to be a nice easy ride, flat and not much wind. I had expected flat terrain but wild card was whether head winds might pick up. I started with good breakfast in the hotel and was on the road shortly thereafter. I had stayed at hotel outside Guerrero Negro so first passed under an arch welcoming to Baja California Sur.
The agricultural station was shortly thereafter.
Here are few houses from Guerrero Negro. Notice how each one has its own water tank on the roof. I’ve seen one or two tank trucks but am surprised there aren’t more. This is very dry region, so I don’t expect them to catch much rainwater.
After Guerrero Negro, the road became very flat and open. This is taken looking backwards with the sun. Felt like a “training ride” as mostly pedaling on flat terrain as the kilometers passed.
I did see a few horses and one cow. There was an occasional house along the way and signs for small roads leading off the main highway.
At 40km was this small store by a few more houses. Nice place to stop and get a quick snack. After this several cyclists passed including the two American cyclists from yesterday. I also cycled for short bit with a German cyclist who started in Anchorage, rode up to Fairbanks and is heading southbound eventually also through Central America and eventually South America. He was riding with a second German cyclist and had met along the way.
At 76km I came to small town of Vizcaino. It was still early but a bit too far to San Ignacio in a single day and so otherwise nice place to stop. I wandered through town after that to get bite to eat and see some shops.
