We moved to a new campsite after a resupply trip to Yuma, Arizona, about 25 miles away. We’re closer to the American Girl Mine Site and closer to the base of the mountains. We have a great view out our window to the mountains. We also have good exposure to the south for our solar panel and the Zodi portable shower cannister.
The American Girl Mine was apparently a series of open pit mines with tons of tailings that were artfully spread around the desert landscape. We can hike to the base of these tailings about 1 + 1/2 miles away. The patterns created must have something to do with limiting erosion I expect.
