Wanted to stop at this Indian archeological site but it is closed on Mondays and they would not do an exception for us.

So instead we go to El Chipo for some cerveza and generous portions of tostadas.

Made it back to Tecate and while waiting we are exploring some border markers. This one is #243.

The line to the border crossing is over 2km long. It took us 2:15 to get back to US.
That is like to drive from SD to Gorgonio trailhead. But overall the trip was great.
