( Writing this from Darby Well Road on January 11. )
Yesterday, Saturday the 10th, was a beautiful sunny day and we explored severals sites in Ajo. Lucky for us since it rained all day today and this is are last day here. On to a new adventure on Monday.
We stopped at the Mine Museum and talked to a very nice couple from Ajo who volunteer their knowledge of the Cornilia Mine and the history of Ajo. He worked in the copper mine for 32 years and she knew the town history and the surrounding area. The museum is located in front of the mine pit and you can view the entire mine from the fence above.
By now it's time for lunch so we go back to camp, fix some sandwiches and stir the chicken stew in the Croc-Pot. We head back to town at 3:30 to meet in the parking lot of the visitor center at Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Refuge on the northern outskirts of Ajo.
