Example text

Not far from here almost five hundred prehistoric murals had been discovered tucked in the overhangs of canyons. They are popularly known as the cave paintings. In vivid red and black they portray springing mountain lions, buck deer contesting with their antlers, native shamans with elaborate headdresses and outstretched arms.

Salttolerant plants—pickleweed and meado de sapo (toad piss)—sprouted near the lagoon shoreline. A flotilla of driftwood lay exposed across a sea of mud, accentuating the feeling of being marooned.
