Ajo, Arizona: Mill Tailings

Guard Shac

Somehow, I have these pictures on my camera. I’m not quite sure how they got there but they look like glimpses of the mill tailings from the New Cornelia mine in Ajo, Arizona. I have no idea who would have managed to get them from behind the fences. …or do I?

The tailings have eroded in some fantastic ways. They look like mini-canyons and cliffs.
