Or, maybe just time is standing still? Can’t believe that I have not posted for 10 days now.
But there was just not that much going on for me in the Ajo area. Sent the heli up one morning for a look into the mine pit from the south side. The town of Ajo is visible on the far side. The pit is almost a mile across at this point.
Took a hike up the lower slopes of a mountain to the east, and discovered another cactus-protected burrow of some small desert dweller.
And some views of the mine pit and tailings piles to the north.
I found some tracks of a cloven-hoofed animal, and some minor scratching and digging in the soil that I assume was a javelina or peccary.
Next: On the road, and meeting up with some more northern neighbours and bloggers!
