Photographer's Note

It's a desert -- less than five inches of rain per year -- but it teems with life. The Cataviņa Boulder Field is as rugged as Baja gets, with volcanic rocks as big as houses. But the force of nature will not be denied -- giant cardon cacti, the strange trees called cirios, elephant trees, and innumerable smaller brush create habitat for a variety of creatures, from mice to snakes and, always, birds.

For the record, the proper name of the Mexican state that comprises the northern half of the peninsula is simply "Baja California," not Baja California Norte, although the southern state is called Baja California Sur.
