The Cardon as Ambience

Atardecer y Cardon
Sunset over the desert
The cardon is an omnipresent facet of life in the Baja Peninsula. It surrounds us and permeates the very atmosphere with its presence.

Although difficult to evaluate objectively the impact on the local society and such commercial aspects as tourism, it is undeniable that the disappearance of the cardon from the Baja Peninsula would forever change the face of this land, leaving a hole in the fabric of the world.
