Where on Earth is Baja California

Baja California, along the southwestern edge of North America, lies between the latitudes of 32 degrees 30 minutes and 23 degrees—a range where deserts occur worldwide, both in the northern and southern hemispheres. The Baja California peninsula, about 760 miles (over 1220 kilometers) in length, is almost completely surrounded by water, with the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortés) to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It is Earth's second-longest peninsula—only the Malay Peninsula is longer.
