Navopatia


Hola, buenas tardes!
I sat down at the computer to post to the blog and decided I would first take a look at a Pinterest post someone sent me. So, here I am two hours later, finally getting to the post. Whew, I don't know about you, but it is sure not easy to take a look at one little thing on Pinterest.

On Sunday we went down to Navopatia at the invitation of a friend who has a little casa there. Navopatia is a very small community on the Agiobampa estuary, about two hours south west of Alamos. Around twelve homes are nestled in the scrub and pipe cactus and there is no running water or electricity and it is very rustic and primitive, a wonderful place.
 Among the residents of Navopatia is the Alamos Wildlands Alliance. A small non profit organization dedicated to conservation, community building, education and research. The alliance maintains a small field station at the estuary, December through March.

The estuary is very popular with birders and a canoe or kayak trip will take you across the estuary into the thick mangroves and then out to the white sand beaches along the Sea of Cortez. 
 Below are some photos taken at the alliance field station.





To find out more about the Alamos Wildlands Alliance, you can visit the website at www.alamoswildlands.org. They have some wonderful photographs of the estuary and of the living spaces at the field station.

 A very peaceful day.
Que le vaya bien! Linda Lou
