This is the geological formation known as God’s Bridge. It’s on the dirt road between Rayones and Galeana. If you’ve never stopped, it’s worth a visit.
The La Bonita restaurant has opened across the street from the famous (but now closed) El General restaurant. We ate here during our Labor Day ride and the food is good. It’s a pretty fancy place for Galeana. I hope … Continue reading →
While enjoying a cold Coke outside a small store in Mainero, Mexico, this older fellow asked me if I would buy him one too. So I did.

After passing through the gate, we discovered one reason why this road isn’t being used anymore – there isn’t a road. Rains had completely washed it away, as can be seen in the picture above. That big arroyo is where … Continue reading →
