Jan. 7 – Upgraded Campsite

On our walk today we went north and then followed a wash east and came upon a great campsite. The only problem is we went cross country to find it, we didn’t see any navigable road to drive to it!

The colorful firepit looked too good to burn anything in, there was another firepit nearby that was well used!

This site was on the edge overlooking the wash we were traveling up. What a wonderful view of the distant Kofa mountains. We continued up the wash and soon found an even more enhanced campsite!

This amazing firepit/fireplace was down along the lower edge of the wash and looked recently used.

There was even a stash of firewood under the tree near the fireplace. There didn’t appear to be any cement used in its construction, only the rocks scavenged from the wash and the abundant sand.

On the back side there was a built in seat! The hot seat maybe?

Comfortable enough with an arm rest!

    Cool constructions! Great spots to have a fire under the stars, too! (I’m jealous; you’re visiting such fantastic places….)
