We have spent a couple of days exploring Ajo, and the surrounding desert. Saturday we went in search of two caches, the first took us to the desert west of Ajo.
We had to park the car and walk about one half mile.
Found the cache
Drove through the desert to the next cache, we really don’t want to get lost in the desert, so as well as the GPS,we take pictures just in case.
On the way we saw evidence of an old settlement ? or garbage dump.
It was all glass and tin cans, for about one quarter mile.
The cache was under the tree.
Toda we checked out two campgrounds, the first at the roping arena,
It appears to be dispersed camping, we didn’t see anyone there but I read somewhere that it is three dollars a night.
The other camping spot was on Cole Rd at the Denison Park picnic area of the Ajo Regional Park, this one is free.
We also saw the Airport
And the Golf Course or Country Club
And then we headed to the Museum…but on the way look at what we saw.
There were two crossing the road by the tennis courts, they climbed the fence and disappeared into the bush, we stopped and one came back out by the fence.
I had to lighten this one,he started to climb the fence but a truck came and scared
him or her off.
The tennis courts
And Then we went to the Museum and had a very informative man show us around and tell us about the mine and the history of the town of Ajo.
Tomorrow we move on. We have enjoyed our time exploring Ajo
