Guadalupe Hot Springs Ride Report
Posted 07 May 2012 - 10:33 AM
Our day started out in the pay parking lot in Tecate California. Some of us choose to ride across to avoid the long border crossing on our way back on Sunday.
No riding jackets needed for this trip....even with the sleeves removed.
Our next stop was a located near Rancho Santa Veronica to meet up with the rest of our group that had driven across the border.
The usual re-grouping on the trail.
Next stop was the Ponderosa Ranch. The pool was ice cold and it was great to soak our heads in the cold water before putting on our helmets and moving on.
650's still rule in the long hot baja rides,
After stopping in La Rumorosa for some tacos and gas we headed down the grade.
One bad rock and this is what can happen, but if you have a moose bib, this bike made it all the way to Guadalupe and back on this rim!
Please stand by....more to come.

Re-grouping on the dry lake before heading up to the hot springs.
We arrived at the hot springs to a cool mountain breeze and a cold beverage.
Beautiful camp site, hot tubs and views.
Saturday was a day to relax and tell B.S. baja stories.
More to come.

Some views along the way.
After the 45 min. hike the 65 degree water felt great!
The jumping rock.
Some view on the way back down. You could feel about a 10 degree change on the hike back down because for the change in elevation.
more to come.

All went well....well there was that one guy that knocked him self out on the way home near Ponderosa Ranch but then again, Teem dosen't call us the Carnage Circus for no good reason.
I hope you've wasted a few minuets of your work day enjoying our trip.

(North of the 3 and West of the 5) Maybe only 60 or so miles south of the border but the way we went it was about 144 from Tecate via Ponderosa and the cando trail and onto the dry lake.
