From the looks of it, the Desert Assassins are off to a great start at the 2017 Monster Energy Trail of Missions presented by BFGoodrich Tires. The DA made their way from the US/Mexico border and all the way down to Mision Santa Maria on the beach in San Quintín. In between, the crew hit all the necessary spots beginning with the pine forest, which has a northern California feel. Definitely a unique landscape to this region of Baja. Before hitting the crossover road to the Pacific, lunch at Asadero El Rancho in Valley de Trinidad was a must. Donuts on the beach were essential before calling it quits for the day.
