The Sierra Laguna Bioshpere Reserve in Mexico

 

 

The Sierra Laguna mountain range is located in the cape region of Baja California Sur  and as a bioshpere reserve this area is  a protected environment which prohibits development. At higher elevations, the sierra laguna´s also qualify  as  a cloud forest during the summer months when the peaks are consistently shrouded in mist or rain. This type of climate supports a mix of desert, tropical and sub-alpine flora which are unique in North America. Likewise,  a variety of fauna such as deer, coyote, tree frogs and mountain lions can also be found in this area.  As a result, the Sierra Laguna´s are a popular destination for hikers and backpackers who come to enjoy the impressive scenery which surrounds the numerous mountain trails of this reserve.
