This week’s rundown sponsored by Capone’s
Day of the Dead traditions continue in Puerto Peñasco now as we enter November, so this weekend look for more catrinas and sugarskulls decorating the town. Mornings are cooling off so you may want to throw a light sweater on over that t-shirt for a bit – or I guess what we’re saying is “layering” season has begun. Enjoy the wonderful weather, the arts, the music, and plenty of outdoor fun – and let’s run down the weekend (p.s. ROCKY POINT RALLY starts next week!!!! Get your leathers and beads!) Go Cubs!
Driver’s note: Bumpy “rough road” between KM 15 – KM 30 just south of Sonoyta when heading to Rocky Point. Watch for SAND on Coastal Highway towards el Golfo.
