Baja Travel Adventures
By David Kier

Camping and four wheeling Baja California has been a passion of David Kier, starting as a child in the family Jeep. In 1973, David published his first Baja guidebook and a second was published the following year. David enjoys helping travelers and continues to research Baja’s rich history and write travel articles. In 2012, he teamed up with history author Max Kurillo to write The Old Missions of Baja & Alta California, 1697-1834. In 2016, David wrote a more detailed history book with his Baja California Land of Missions. In 2020, David and Max Kurillo co-authored Old Missions of the Californias with new data on the missions. David maintains the website VivaBaja.com to share his travels and more!

Check out David's new interactive Baja map! It's the ideal way to explore all the fascinating sites he writes about.
