Pachycereus pringlei, also known as Mexican giant cardon or elephant cactus, is a species of cactus native to northwestern Mexico. It is commonly known as cardón, a name derived from the Spanish word cardo, meaning "thistle." The fruit of this cactus was an important food for the Seri people in Sonora, who call the cactus xaasj. The flesh of this cactus contains alkaloids, and may have been used as a psychoactive plant in Mexico. A symbiotic relationship with bacterial and fungal colonies on its roots allows P. pringlei to grow on bare rock even where no soil is available at all, as the bacteria can fix nitrogen from the air and break down the rock to produce nutrients. The cactus even packages symbiotic bacteria in with its seeds.

The island of Tortuga features an endemic species of rattlesnake. They are found throughout the island except in the crater. I am always perplexed on how these animals end on an island 20 miles offshore. For a species to populate a place, you need at least 2 specimens, a male and a female. What is your theory? #fujifilm   #xt1   #baja   #snake

Isla Tortuga volcano is a young basaltic shield volcano that forms the small 4 km wide island of the same name located 40 km off the Baja coast in the Gulf of California. The volcano has a circular summit caldera, about 100 m deep, containing a frozen lava and several cinder cones from probably relatively recent eruptions. Young lava flows cover most of the volcano's flanks.

Landing on Isla Tortuga was really not obvious - in fact the entire coast is a almost inaccessible. The only place I found was a collapsed part that offered access to a place I could camp. +MeFOTO +Wilderness Systems

I am not sure if some of you remember but several months ago, my Salsa #Fargo (https://instagram.com/p/xhSaPqGDIF/) bike was stolen. Last week, I get an email  from Cycle City, the place where I had taken my bike to be put together. He tells me the freaking incredible simply insane news that someone just walked in the shop with the bike, wanting to get a flat tire fixed! Everyone in the store froze and knew this was my bike. Even though it was exactly the same, for the police not to question the ownership, the serial number had to match. When I got the bike months ago, I had thought that this information was on the shipping invoice, so I hadn't taken the number down. Harry, the owner of Cycle City, had had a gut feeling for some reason to take note of the serial number - something he has never done, ever. Well, the serial of this bike that had just been bought in was a match! I am beyond ecstatic to announce that the prodigy child has returned - unscratched, in one piece, in perfect condition. To the God of Bike Karma, I am down on my knee, hands in the air, crying tears of joy and thanking you. ‪#‎luck‬

I was wondering why the last #inreach +DeLorme  recap of my solo paddle to Isla Tortuga looked so different. Until I realized that I used the Aerial mapping instead of the topo images. It doesn't read as well but for this time it will do!   #Baja   #Bajacalifornia

the Crotalus tortugensis is smaller than its close relative, C. atrox, with large males not growing to much more than 100 cm (39 in) in length. The largest specimen on record is 105.8 centimetres (41.7 in) (Klauber, 1972). Compared to C. atrox, the head is shorter relative to the length of the body—a trait considered to be an indication of dwarfing, which is common in island populations. Klauber (1956) gives an average venom yield of 56 mg for this species. For comparison, the same study yielded an average of 277 mg for C. atrox.

"...We have to inspire each other and see the beauty within us. We are a species that rises in the face of challenges. We are experts at adapting. Yes we have done mistakes. And we won’t stop making new ones. That is life. But by accepting responsibility, by finding humility and believing that the strength of our spirit is intertwined with the natural world, I believe that together we can lay the foundations to a world we can be proud of..."

The tent was up on the main land. The kitchen though was down by the water, in a hole, in a big rock, protected from the wind. +Wilderness Systems +Icebreaker Merino

Back to the paddle to Isla Tortuga! The volcanic island didn't offer much refuge. It is quite inhospitable. The tent though was well anchored and the view spectacular! It was the perfect campsite to watch large pods of dolphins and whales passing by. +MeFOTO +Sierra Design Signs  #fujifilm   #xt1

The world record for the landing of a California Yellowtail is 92.1 pound. Not really my priority. Give me a little 3 pound fish and I am in heaven. I caught this one trolling, right as I arrived to the island. After thanking the ocean and the fish, later in the day, for dinner, I slightly sautéed the yellowtail, with the head (the cheeks are so damn good!) - it was pure bliss! +Wilderness Systems +Kokatat Inc

Happy #EarthDay! This last week has been very interesting... on my way from Loreto back to La Paz, #Baja California Sur. A lot to say, a lot to share and a lot more coming up! By the way, book recommendation, David Abram's new book Becoming Animal is a must read! +MeFOTO

"Daniel Fox is the quintessential explorer. Working with Daniel, I always look forward to his dispatches as they come to us, as they're guaranteed to drip with passion, courage, and stunning images the likes of which most people will never see. One part intrepid adventurer, one part naturalist, and one part environmentalist, Fox not only uses his expedition for personal growth, but documents it adroitly with tremendous technical craft, in order to share it with the world.  His generosity of spirit makes for important work that will affect the destiny of our natural world positively.  The work he produces enriches the lives of our readers by capturing their imagination, demonstrating the hidden industry of beauty that is our uncharted world." Stiv Wilson, former Editor In Chief, Wend Magazine
