A common sight as you travel on Mexico Highway 1 is the Roadside Memorial. This picture was taken between La Ribera and Santa Cruz, Baja California Sur and is a pretty good example. Most are quite a bit smaller, but some are even larger than this one. They may commemorate a person who has died at this spot, or it may be a shrine to honor a saint. We saw hundreds of them as we drove the transpenisular highway.
