Sorry for the large size. Hit CTRL - (minus) to make smaller.


This board's HTML code is quirky. I need to figure out the command to make it the proper size.

Thanks for the great post.

Did you access these points by boat?

Visited all the places over the 4th of July.

The road South of La Paz we did in my truck. It was too hot to take our bikes. The canyon pass to get to the ocean was one of the most nerve racking I've ever done. About 4 miles of switch backs with sheer drops. Would have been much more fun on the bike.

The Isla San Jose shot is about 8 miles off the coast of Baja, launching from San Evaristo. It's a 3hr drive on a dirt road up from La Paz to San Evaristo. A very cool drive. Rented a panga and also took my 11 foot Zodiac. Rode it all through the mangrove. Lots of little paths in it.

Isla Coronado is just a few miles Northeast of Loreto. I chartered a boat in Loreto to take us to Punta Pulpito, which is about 40 miles above Loreto. We stopped at San Basilio along the way. My kids rode the Zodiac the next 10 miles to Pulpito. It's massive, you can see it 20-30 miles away. I'll post some other pics of it. I took the Zodiac inside the cave. Pretty cool. You can drive to San Basilio. An easy 10 miles in the dirt from MX 1.

JZ (and others)


The board software is not quirky.  When members upload a photo the limit is 1MB in file size and 640 pixels wide.  That is for files loaded onto our server.


Your situation is different because these files are shown via a hyper link to your photo bucket account. 
Therefore the the board is going to show the files as they exist in your photo bucket program. 


My suggestion would be to setup a sub directory in your photo bucket program that
 makes the file size about 640 wide max and then link to photos in that sub directory.  That will keep them in a proper size for the board with out stretttttching your post out.


Hope that helps......


Bart
