People coming from the US are welcome to park in the parking lots on the US side just before the border, walk a block over the border and take a cab (about $4) to the museum. That way you don’t need Mexican insurance to drive in Mexico and walking back over the border is a breeze. You just need to have US passports. Tecate is still a small town, very safe and friendly.

  2. Hello,
    I saw the lovely photo of pan roasting cones and we sell cone boxes from P. Edulis. There was nothing we found in P. Monophylla this year. I would like to use your photo on my blog, with of course, proper credit. Would that be alright? Penny Frazier

    1. Hi Penny,
      You’re more than welcome to use the photo, or any of the pinyon photos. Last year, we bought some of your delicious pine nuts and shared them with folks at an Indian Health Conference in our area. And I know you have been working to help repopulate the pinyon pines for a very long time.
      All the best, Deborah

      1. Deborah, are you the same person who teaches basketry from your camp/workshop near Mary’s Peak in Oregon? Are you still doing classes? When; where; how long are classes? If so, please contact me. I made the rock crystal sterling pendant. I hope you are the teacher I am looking for. Thanks, Pat
