PSIP Description: 
Explore the musing, memories and depiction of the lives of ancient people adorning dry cave walls.
Long Description: 
Adorning the walls in a dry cave are the musing and memories of the ancient people who eked out a living in this inhospitable land. These pictographs are world famous for their depiction of the lives and legends of the ancient, vanished Cochimi Indians. Halfway across the peninsula, our group visits the top of the Sierra del San Francisco Mountains. Along the way they come across elephant trees, huge gypsum crystals, and even relatives of the pineapple growing in the cactus. Nearing the Pacific side of the peninsula, the ocean begins to dominate the landscape, the plants, and the lives of people that live near it.
