9:30am: We will meet at the restaurant El Esterito. 9:30am-10:00am: We will leave the restaurant and drive in our own vehicles to the property where the first trailhead is located. 10:00am-11:30am: We will hike to Canyon El Sehenco, taking time to observe the geology of the canyon as well as the unique species of plants and animals we may encounter. 11:30am-12:00pm: We will return to our vehicles and drive to the property where the second trailhead is located. 12:00pm-1:30pm: We will hike to the spring of El Ojo de Agua. This mountainside spring has water year-round and harbors mosses and ferns. In addition, we will see many Mexican fan palms and stunning views of the coastline. 1:30pm-2:00pm We will hike back to our vehicles and drive to the restaurant El Dorado where we will enjoy freshly prepared ceviche, table d' hoate. If you find you are still hungry after the ceviche, you are welcome to purchase and enjoy some excellent seafood offered here. This palapa restaurant is located on a beautiful sandy beach where you can observe local fishermen returning with the days catch, or enjoy a pleasant swim (weather permitting) in the waters of the Sea of Cortez. NOTE: we can visit different oases depending on the ability of the group.
I have received a Master's in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Arizona through the Marine Sciences program. Originally from Caborca, Sonora I have always had a profound appreciation of the Sea of Cortez, and the people who call this region home. I speak both English and Spanish at a mother tongue level, and am in effect bicultural. As a former educator at the University of Arizona, I have taught and coordinated numerous field trips to the coast addressing conservation and ecology issues pertinent to the Gulf of California and the surrounding Sonoran desert. I hope to inspire and share my appreciation and understanding of the ecology of the region of San Carlos with you!

Wo ihr sein werdet
El Sehenco and El Ojo de Agua are located on private property with limited access. The microclimate at these locations is wetter and cooler than the surrounding desert creating an oasis with an abundance of native fan palms amongst lush vegetation. The habitat resembles tropical deciduous forests found further south and here many tropical species find their most northern distribution. This is a unique experience, unlike most tourist activities!
