Next Rock Art Painting Walk Scheduled For Wednesday, February 13 - Please join us on Wednesday, February 13 for our next rock art painting walk. An indigenous culture that persisted for possibly 1,000 years is now long gone, but evidence that the Guaycura once lived and thrived here in Baja is all around us. Come join us and a local anthropologist to explore a rock art site that is still not open to the general public. Located on a lovely old working ranch along the former Camino de las Misiones, this walk features not only rock art, but other evidence of the Guaycura civilization including grinders, mortars and even some arrowheads. It's a terrific walk through the history of Baja. - Sergio Jauregui, TSEcoAdventures [- at -] hotmail.com, www.tosea.net, 612-14-50189, Baja California Sur

Free To Loving Home -->> - She was adopted! Just thought the readers would like to know. The Baja Western Onion

2 Dogs Need A Home - The casita I rented came with 2 dogs. The first day they were a little skittish but over the past few days have adjusted well. They greet me when I come back from town and they bark if someone approaches the casita. The male looks like a Sheppard cross and I think still growing. He had a collar on which I had to cut off since it was too tight. The female is a very sweet dog and still young. It would be best if someone could take both since they are such good buddies. The reality is I cannot take them with me otherwise I would. They are both fantastic dogs and deserve a home. Please email me if you would like to see some photos of these adorable dogs. - Gus, gus_dej [- at -] hotmail.com, 556084-3442
