Elefante over Los Gigantes

We woke up yesterday morning to this sunrise view of a cloud bank capping the range of mountains known as Los Gigantes. The Baja Peninsula, although mountainous, is so narrow that occasionally strong winds on the Pacific side seem to spill over into the Sea of Cortez. Occasionally this causes strange cloud formations known as Elefantes, because they look like the trunks of elephants. Although this may not have been a real Elefante, we did have a great west wind for sailing south, and we are now back in beautiful Agua Verde.
