Longnose Puffers Can be Pesky! I have been bitten 5 times. Become aware of their behaviors so you can keep that number at zero. Those that have been approached by this cute little fish, please share your encounters in the video comment section. William

La Ventana Bird Checklist - For those who are interested in birding the area, the La Ventana and Cacachilas Mountains Bird Checklist that we did is now available in the Cacachilas Bike Shop. The checklists are free.
MasViento Nerd Note - While I was hiking in the incredible Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve last week, I had a clear view of the entire Baja California Sur peninsula from Todos Santos, to La Paz, to Cerralvo Island. From that vantage point, it was very clear to me how the amazing La Ventana wind machine works. Here is a google earth image showing some of the key elements that come together to produce our thermals. The area around Los Planes heats up rapidly by midday, and since warm air is lighter than cold air, it rises. This creates a partial vacuum, and since the area around Los Planes is ringed by mountains on most sides, air rushes in from the north and is funneled between Cerralvo Island and El Sargento. If there is a sufficient background north flow above the surface, the thermal effect is added to it, making magic. Wes (on Facebook: MasViento).
