It's October in Sonora, and in addition to a bunch of festivals to honor patron saints, there's a festival in Trincheras to honor Mexican historical figure Joaquin Murrieta.

And the weather is great for enjoying outdoor events. The month starts with fishing tournaments in Rocky Point and San Carlos, and there are an abundance of other outdoor events, from volleyball and over-the-line softball to golf. Ah, Mexico...
