Landon’s legacy will always live on with the amazing map that he created; published between 1997-2009. The Baja California Almanac is regarded as the best topographical map of the Baja California peninsula. This map book has been out of print since 2010 and finding one on eBay or Amazon is often difficult.

This smaller Baja fold out map was a once-off map publication that was printed in the mid-2000s, but it is impossible to find now. Originally selling for a mere $5.95, they were quickly outta stock and never to be seen again.
Furthermore, if you are seeking to travel Baja California in depth, may we suggest a GPS unit; and downloading the more relevant, digital maps over at Baja GPS Guide.

Several notable Baja California towns:
Plumas National Forest, Rivers and Lakes
A horrific, huge amount of Plumas National Forest has been recently burned by wildfires in recent years, resulting in many trail, lake and campground closures in certain regions. Call ahead to ranger stations to see what is actually open, before you make the long drive.
