Barnaby Monk 5 a.m., Sept. 17
The Valley of Guadalupe is Mexico's premier wine region, and only a short drive from the U.S. along Highway 3 between Tecate and Ensenada. This is a land of pleasant surprises, especially if you like history. It was here that Spain built the last of the missions. It was also in this location that a group of Russians decided to immigrate and farm the land. What's more, there are two inviting Kumeyaay villages nearby.
