Photographer's Note

Countless arroyos furrow the volcanic plain of the Baja peninsula. Ancient nomads traveled these canyons and left some remarkable paintings of cacti, fish, whales, antelope, and people. Scholars are uncertain of the age of the paintings, with estimates as wide as 1,000 to 7,000 years, but the dry climate has allowed them to remain viewable to this day. Many of the sites are not easy to reach, which also helps their survival. Here, a group ventures into an arroyo in the hills outside of Mulege.

Originally shot on 35mm Fuji Velvia.
