San Felipe: Baja California life on Mexico's Sea of Cortez
The small village of San Felipe is located on the north end of the Sea of Cortez within what is known as the Sonoran Desert, a mere 120 miles south of Calexico and Mexicali on the International border between Yuma and San Diego. The first road there was completed around 1949. Abelardo Rodriguez, interim president of Mexico from 1932 to1934, owned a large section of land of San Felipe, along with his partner and lawyer Guillermo Rosas.
