A FEW BLOG CORRECTIONS
A few things to correct from a couple previous posts. I stated there were no Cactus plants in Las Cienegus and that is incorrect. I had read that on their website but we have since seen some Prickly Pear Cactus, Cholla, and Sotol. Not many, but they are here. Also said when coming in the west entrance here to drive to the end of pavement which will lead into the Empire Ranch. That is partially correct. When rounding a right hand curve watch closely for a paved section going left off the main road and that short piece of pavement will lead you into the ranch over a cattleguard. The paved road itself continues for another hundred yeards then over a cattle guard where it drops you onto a dirt road leading to a T-intersection ahead. To reach the the campground turn right at the T-intersection and go for maybe a mile or so keeping an eye out on the right for the campground. Turning left at the T-intersection leads you to the area we usually go. Keep in mind these roads are a bit bumpy in spots and always very dusty.
WHEN YOU SEE THIS ROAD SPLIT, TURN LEFT INTO THE RANCH IF YOU WANT TO UN-HOOK…THE RANCH AREA ROADS ARE NOT PAVED
We took a drive into Sonita this morning to check on the availability of a laundromat or dump station facilities. There are none. Closest dump is Quail Ridge Resort RV Park on the southwest corner of highways 82 and 90 in Whetstone 21 miles east of Sonoita Arizona.
BIGGEST THREAT TO THE AREA IS GRASS FIRES AND THIS LOOKS LIKE A RECENT ONE ABOUT 5 MILES SOUTH OF SONOITA
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing the sick-leave provisions set out by their contract. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in sick yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. A union negotiator broke the silence in the room. "Wow!" he said. "Just think of the score he could have had if he wasn't sick!"
