Last winter, Lesa was talking up Fortuna Pond. It sounded nice.
"How do I get there?" I asked.
"Well... It would just be easier to lead you," she replied.
And she did. It involved driving through fields of green leafy vegetables and doubling back on a levy. And the entrance wasn't all that obvious.
It's an attractive spot, usually quiet, with easy access to Yuma. I knew I would be returning this year. Lou wanted to go, too.
"How do you get there?" he asked.
"Well... It would just be easier to lead you," I replied.
I originally thought this blog post would give detailed directions, complete with maps and photos of landmarks. But then I came to my senses. There isn't a lot of room for camping. It could get crowded quickly if more people knew how to get here. So I think it's better if someone who likes you, who knows you're a good camping neighbor, leads you here. Or, if you're resourceful enough to find Fortuna Pond on your own, then I guess you would have earned the "right" to be here.
Meanwhile, there are the occasional loud, irresponsible, destructive assholes I wish would forget the way to Fortuna Pond.
You can follow those directions if you really like washboard road.Delete
Arg. Sounds too close for comfort for my delicate camping needs with assholes arrival potential LOL. Oh well. Must be lots of other good camping around though.ReplyDelete
Even though the Verizon signal is okay here, the response is sluggish. Not enough bandwidth. Probably not good for your purposes.Delete
There's a secluded 1-rig campsite down a dogleg just off the entry road. It overlooks what I think is the Gila River and is surrounded by trees. Mucho privacy. I think it has your name on it.ReplyDelete
However, if assholes arrive, I might grab the spot for myself.Delete
