Bahia Salinas

Bahia Salinas is the site of an old salt harvesting operation. Today, it's mainly a camp for the people who come to Isla Carmen to hunt big horn sheep, and populated largely by rather alarmingly heavily armed men. I rowed ashore right after we arrived and took pictures - a good thing, that, as the wind came up overnight out of the south, and we were hightailing it back to P.E. after a very rolly night by about 9:00 the following morning.

Some of the abandoned salt processing facilities:

The salt ponds:

A random pile of rusty equipment. There's an entire truck in there somewhere:

There was also a chapel, apparently still in use. I've really loved the churches I've seen in Mexico:
