Backroad Oasis

El Cajon is part of the Cuchujaqui River. It seems to be fed by a large underground spring as it is very deep. Traveling for 2 hours from Alamos on a very bad and dusty backroad we opened and closed at least 10 gates. It was a short walk from a cow corral up the river and there it was ..... an emerald green mirage.

Burros in La Aduana

Just Charge It ! a visit to La Aduana

 La Aduana  is located a few miles from Alamos but it feels like Mexico of long ago.

 When you walk into the general store on the plaza at La Aduana, you will be greeted with friendly faces like this boy and his proud grandma. Everyone hangs out at the store or outside under the portal and no one ever sits in the glorieta in the middle of the road. The tienda is where you can have a cold soda and chat with the neighbors or help the 2 gringas find a ranchito.

 Please don't sit on the counter and if your name is pinned up maybe you should pay up (a slightly embarrassing way of billing)
