6th Annual Cavalcade
The Desert Riders Club of Rocky Point, "El club de cabalgantes del desierto de Puerto Pe�asco", sends out a big thank-you to all the cabalgantes (horseback riders) who joined in on the 6th Annual "Uniting status coastal cavalcade". Riders from the state of Sonora began their long journey from Puerto Pe�asco, after a traditional blessing from Father Charly at "The Pines", which is owned by Mr. Mario Alvarez B., the president of the Rocky Point arm of the club. The group then headed out 32 km to the ranch, "El Bajio de Alvarez", in Sotelo (the old train station).
On the other end of the trail, the Club Riders from Baja California had begun their ride on April 18th, with the first day beginning in San Luis Rio Colorado. The two groups met for a very welcome and delicious Maya (pit) BBQ, after which they headed to Puerto Pe�asco for a grand parade through the main street of town and to the Malecon with over 200 cabalgantes and over 300 people who accompanied them.
The cavalcade finished at the main Blvd Benito Juarez where the Mayor Sonoyta, Lic. Raul Contreras and Mr. Mario Alvarez Barnett, thanked the attendees. Closing the event was a dance by "The compas of Sonora" and a spectacular showing of the dancing show horses.
Men and women for all over the State of Sonora and Baja California, participated in this leg of the trip representing such cities and ejidos as: Puerto Pe�asco, Hermosillo, Obregon, Pitiquito, San Luis rio Colorado, Sonoyta, Col. Madero, Mexicali, Valle Mexicali, Riitos, Ej. Emiliano Zapata, Ej. Independencia, Ej. Nuevo Leon, and Ensenada. It was quite a site to see all of the Cabalgantes riding down the new coastal highway when we were on our Hummer Rally.
