LIVE DESERT

It is difficult to compare the joy of seeing water in the desert.

The peninsula of Baja California Baja can be hostile and to some extent cruel territory in years of drought. Fortunately we have had good amounts of rain in recent years. For Loreto the normal expectation of rainy season is from June to October. It is a delight to see the great changes in nature when there is plenty of water.

The last seasons we have had late hurricanes, these leave great trails of rain in the mountains that on consecutive days runs through the stream feeding life in its wake. This results in green landscapes, oases between mountains, increased reproduction of local wildlife and flowers and fruits in the desert. Definitively, the people of the ranches that sows or dedicates to the cattle ranch are those that have more enjoyed the beneficial effects of the rain.

For those who visit us during the summer or fall these changes are very visible. Small mammals, rodents, reptiles, butterflies, bees and countless curious insects go out to meet those who venture to explore the landscape after the rains.

Without doubt the Sierra de la Giganta is a unique place with a complex ecosystem, we feel blessed by the privilege of living in such a paradise.

This is another of the many reasons to visit Loreto Baja California Sur.
