Indy River Camp

Pure artesian water!

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.
Seven 60-ft willows in a 20-tree grove of some 30-ft

Mosquito-protected hammocks, chair & cooktent.
Indy Camp needs chairs and more mosquito netting!

Looking east from property gate, 600 feet to permaculture shady grove.

Can eating responsibly prevent nuke-caused
cancers and
toxic environmental-caused
auto-immune diseases? No! But every day eat
only organic
food or locally grown CSA
farm-fresh, if possible. Our immune system

will have its best chance at fending-off the
disruptions caused by the ionizing
radiation from radionuclide dust
and carbon
pollution - both bankster consumerism created!


Every Morning, Wow! What a
Breakfast! All organic:
lemons, baby spinach, blue corn
tortilla chips;
toasted potatoes with
salsa made with mesquite-roasted
jalapeņos, onion and with fresh-sliced
and mushrooms; curry stir-fried
  with fresh-ground peppercorns and dill

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

Jimson Plant (or Jimson Weed) found along the roads all over

Wintertime. The Indy River Camp lies in the very deepest and narrowest
part of the south-to-north running, 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.
