The GCA Mexico trip itinerary showed the group traveling through an area called "The Barrancas" on their way from Mazatlán to Guadalajara, and the original cataloging of this record assigned that location (for reasons that are unclear) to this image. However, the area identified in most sources as "The Barrancas" is much farther north and is a remote, mountainous region. It's possible that the group skirted "The Barrancas" on the day they traveled from Guaymas to Mazatlán, but there is no definitive way of knowing if this image was taken in that area.
