I'll continue the drive from yesterday around the Ajo scenic loop.
after a couple of miles the road starts getting a bit narrower and as far as I can tell all road markings disappear. When you come to the government sign that warns about illegal aliens and Mexican cartels make a right. I don't remember seeing any signs that say you're supposed to do that, but that's the way to go. That will be the only turn information that I will give because before you get back to Ajo there will be some turns available but I can't remember which ones I took or didn't take because my GPS was navigating for me and I wasn't paying any attention, so I would advise having a map except I don't recall seeing any signs with road names on them.
As you can see here the road has narrowed somewhat but is still perfectly passable by any RV. We've passed the mining property now so there's boondocking on both sides of the road
There's a lot of Organ Pipe Cactus out here if you're a fan. They seem to like the same environment as Saguaro's so when I see Organ Pipe Cactus I also see Saguaro's, but for some reason Saguaro's grow where Organ Pipes don't.
This slide in camper has found a quiet hidey-hole off to himself with a nice view. If I remember correctly I didn't see any large class A's or long trailers this far into the trip, and I would say from here on out I would be very reluctant to drive or tow a large RV down the road because there's not That many large boondocking spots.
This was the largest RV I saw on this leg of the trip, and I would call it a medium-sized class C pulling a small cargo trailer. This wasn't a pull-through that he was in, so it would appear his backing skills are light years ahead of mine. This looks like a very pretty spot to be boondocking but if you live on sunshine like I do you have to be aware of mountains that block the sun for parts of the day.
I imagine for a lot of folks that stay in RV parks most of the time and live a life that revolves around hookups probably look at this picture with a feeling of disbelief how anyone could possibly live here for weeks, or even have the desire to stay in such a godforsaken desolate place such as this.
Sometimes I even read on the RV forums people referring to boondocker's as either too poor, or too cheap, to spend 30 or $40 a night to stay in an RV Park. But to me boondocking has absolutely nothing to do with money and everything to do with the freedom to choose my surroundings, and come and go as I please. Realizing I am definitely in the minority on this, I would say If RV parks were free and I had to pay for spots like this ...... I would pay to boondock.
