Following a route taken by several naturalists over a hundred years prior, a group of present-day adventurers embark on an expedition to document the beautiful and unforgiving landscape of today’s Baja California.
In 1905, two American naturalists set out on horseback across the remote deserts of Baja California, Mexico. Their 2,000-mile expedition was the first of its kind to span the entire peninsula and complete a comprehensive survey of Baja’s flora and fauna. Zig-zagging from coast to coast across the desolate interior, Edward William Nelson and Edward Alphonso Goldman described plants and animals unknown to science. One hundred years later, Goldman’s decedents return to Baja to retrace the steps of this landmark expedition on motorcycles, and document the changing nature of this strange and beautiful landscape.
