The Transpeninsular Highway, part of the Pan-American Highway, spans over 1,000 miles from the city of Tijuana, through the desolate beauty of the Sonoran Desert, to the picturesque town of Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of the peninsula. The road passes through the Valle de los Cirios nature reserve, renowned for the presence of gigantic Cirio plants, also known as "boojum trees" or "flaming trees."
