A Primitive Camping Retreat

Owned and operated by the Cascabel, AZ Community Volunteers













Indy River Camp
Pure artesian water!
Support Indy Media!




One of three feeds from a 50-gallons per hour Flowing Artesian well
(uphill near the front gate) fills a 6' diameter by 2' tank that empties twice
a day into a mesquite & willow grove that shades several structures. A
canvas wall tent is seen in the background. The living area is a shaded
one-acre permaculture micro-environment watered by the artesian. You
can see one of the 50-ft willows (a 7-tree grove )and a few 30-ft mesquite
s.





Camp hammocks and chair & cooktent

Can eating responsibly prevent nuke-caused
cancers and
auto-immune diseases? No!
But every day eat only organic
food, locally
grown, if possible. And your immune system

will have its best chance at fending-off the
cellular
disruptions caused by ionizing
radiation from the nuclear
catastrophe,
at hand!



Every Morning, Wow! What a
Breakfast! All organic:
Local
lemons, baby spinach, blue corn
tortilla chips;
toasted potatoes,
jalapeņos & onion; fresh-sliced
tomato
and mushrooms; curry
and fresh-ground peppercorns








Later in the day all-organic or
locally grown:Toasted multi-grain
bread, fresh-ground coffee,
wild-grown by a community-owned
co-op in Nayarit, Mexico. Fresh
lemon & lime, celery, tomato, green
pepper, carrots and sliced mushrooms
topped with blue corn tortilla chips.

Wintertime. The Indy River Camp lies in the very deepest and
narrowest part of the 150-mile long San Pedro River Valley.






50 miles away, looking west from Redington Pass is Gates Pass,
a favorite Peace & Meditation hangout.
Behind me is a cliff,
and i
n the distance is west Tucson, barely visible.
Our Sonoran Desert Sun is setting.

Coming back, down into the "Indy" San Pedro River Valley from
Redington Pass and Tucson 30 miles back. This is an absolutely
critical north-south migratory bird route corridor and wildlife
habitat. The San Pedro stretches from Mexico to just
southeast of Phoenix.
