Thursday March 10, 2022 Ajo Arizona
Gaelyn and I left our Kofa camp just after nine this morning headed south to Yuma and on to Ajo after some shopping.
Just above Yuma we went through some farm country.
We did some shopping for food and then headed east on highway 8 and got some gas along the way.
Gaelyn gets us lost
Gaelyn wanted to dump her tanks in Gila Bend but couldn’t locate the dump place so after getting lost a bit we got on the right road headed south toward Ajo.
As we got closer to Ajo the desert started to get a bit lusher.
Around four in the afternoon we came into the outskirts of Ajo. We were both pretty tired out from all the driving we had to do to get here.
Darby Wells Road
We went through Ajo and got on the Darby Wells Road that goes around the old copper mine tailings.
There were lots of campers on Darby road so we had a hard time finding a place to camp but eventually we found this place which will do for now.
Walk around camp
Just before dark I went for a little walk around our camp spot to check things out a bit walking up this drainage area.
This caught my eye as I went past it.
Water for animals
This wind mill provides water for water for animals. It has a solar panel on it so the wind mill no longer pumps water but an electric pump does.
Gaelyn joined me as I came back to camp and we walked around a bit checking out the sunset to our west.
Just before dark this truck pulled in fairly close to us, about a hundred feet. He seemed to be doing something and he camped there for the night.
I’ll mosey over
If he’s still there tomorrow I’ll mosey over to pick his mind for info on what’s going on around here, as there seems to be some mining going on in this area that I hadn’t noticed before.
It got dark so I went in the van for the night and fixed some dinner. My cell phone doesn’t work here, but Gaelyn’s does so I should be able to post this tomorrow.
