To be honest, yes we were quite nervous about the border crossing as we'd been hearing in the news (and from friends and family) about numerous daytime shootings and drug lord violence near the border towns and throughout Mexico. We kept our mind focused on positive thoughts and had several "intention sessions" along our route to keep us out of harm's way. I'm happy to say it has been working well for us so far.
I didn't take any photos during our drive to the border because a) my camera battery was dead and b) I was working on a new blog post.
I did, however, take a few photos with Evan's iPhone. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share with you the photos I captured outside the city of Monterey.
