My good friend Linda Jo Hunter has agreed to contribute to 'the baja.' Here is a short bio of Linda.
Author of "Lonesome for Bears, A Woman's Journey in the Tracks of the Wilderness" Lyons Press 2008 and the Co-founder of the International Society of Professional Trackers and an artist. She likes to look at the world from many different perspectives and has circumnavigated the Baja Peninsula 14 times on a small cruise ship as a deckhand. As a boat Captain her first yacht job was to bring a 98 foot yacht to Cabo San Lucas. She and her husband Mike travel to Baja for six months in the winter. They both try and play as hard as they can surfing, outrigger canoe paddling, fishing, painting, playing music, tracking animals, and exploring. Linda's interest in Baja is one of the natural history as it exists today reflecting the history of the people here and how they have lived.
Linda forgot to mention that she is also an excellent photographer.
Her husband Mike is a luthier among other things. When the bridge on my Tama acoustic guitar (my main guitar for over 35 years) started to come off, he repaired it flawlessly with minimal tools.
