Feedback To The Baja Western Onion - Hello, We are currently visiting Baja Sur for 3 weeks from a cold and blustery Western Canada. We included visits to La Paz and Todos Santos (Las Tunas area) in our plans. The Western Onion greatly enhanced our knowledge of the areas and events and outings we could enjoy during our visit.

I do have a special Thank You and Job Well Done to the folks who have designed, built and maintain the single track mountain biking trails in both the La Paz and Las Tunas areas. We have thoroughly enjoyed several great days of riding and did not expect to find trails in such great condition or such an extensive networks. We met people out biking, hiking and walking dogs as we gasped, grinded and smiled our way through 30 miles of trails in Las Tunas and 40 miles in La Paz! Thanks again to those who work on the trails and keep them in great shape. Your hard work does not go un-noticed. What a riot! - Lorri & Ken, Calgary, Alberta Canada

Canary Island Date Palms For Sale - We’ve recently acquired some Canary Island Date Palms. These are good size, but we only have a few of them. These are iconic palms, these particular Canary Island Date Palms have a lot of years under their belts, and would require a crane to plant, which we have. We could plant these for $400.00/per as long as your property has access for a 33’ long crane truck.

We also picked up some stout Blue Mediterranean Fan Palms - these are great for under-planting your bigger blue, or green palms for either unity or contrast, or anywhere else where you want a splash of blue - they don't get big, but spread out some - we also have some with all the same characteristics, but they are green.

Also new are some potted Fijian Palms - these are solidly trunked-out, maybe 2-1/2' - 3' from the ground to the tip of the fronds - not common here in Baja, but will grow well. ¡Email me for photos! - Dean Mcquillen, todossantos1 [- at -] hotmail.com, 612.133.03.11

Please look at his pictures, you may know where he belongs or may want to adopt him. - Ellie Ferri, elliefp [- at -] gmail.com, 612-108-8375, Todos Santos
