Sea of Cortez

World Travel – Mexico (Sonora) 2006 – Part II

The next day we spent out on the Sea of Cortez looking at various rock formations and wildlife; mainly birds. It’s amazing when you look at some of these rocks from Google Earth that they appear completely “White” from all the “Bird Poop” and can be seen from extremely high altitude because they are so reflective.

In the photograph below there was a HUGE nest of the Great Blue Heron; yes right in the middle of that cactus plant.

World Travel – Mexico (Sonora) 2006 – Part I

In April 2006 we use again traveled into Mexico. Our tour began in Phoenix, AZ and we traveled to Tucson to visit San Xavier Mission Church. After crossing the border at Nogalles we stopped in Hermosillo where we enjoyed the beauty of the Catedral di Hermosillo and the Government Palace. By night fall we reached San Carlos and watched the sunset over the Sea of Cortez.
