E and I got to talking about some spots we'd like to visit in Southern Baja this summer. We want to try the new Water Park that opened up on the highway between Los Barriles and San Jose and try to swing a road trip up to Ensenada to see our friend who's having a baby in September! Another place we agreed we want to return to is Canyon de la Zorra, or Canyon of the Fox, which sounds pretty mysterious to me. It is a canyon system off the highway, accessed through Santiago. You arrive on a ledge and have to walk down into the waterfall area via a rough path. Kind of a hike, especially if you're carrying gear to camp or spend the day, but definitely worth it! We visited for the day in 2008 and were not alone...as you can see. The water is fresh and cool and right off the mountains that act as a spine to the Baja peninsula. Daring young kids and teenagers make the leap off the top of the waterfall to the pool below and there's even some good snorkeling to be seen. There are plenty of smaller pools and streams stemming off the main pool for each family or group to have their own oasis. Aahhh, cant wait to go back!
