Estero San José
Our path emerges along the estuary's western arm,
watered by the underground Rio San José.
Palm trees grow on marshy islands
that bend the estuary's open water into a horseshoe shape.
In the far distance, a narrow sand spit
separates the estuary from the Sea of Cortez.
Strict laws protect the estuary as a natural preserve,
but veteran watchers say the birds are in danger.
