January 10th, 2020 Canyon Camp

To access the campsite, turn off the highway at N30.19781 W115.78999. On Google Maps this place is called Arroyo Amargo.There are conspicuous white concrete fence posts along the highway. There are 4 palapas at the lower site. The owner was working on the upper site when we arrived. The hill down to the lower site is quite steep and sandy. No problem when it's dry. Locals collect stones at the beach, apparently for use in landscaping.
