In the morning, we packed up, then drove back to Ajo. We drove through the historic district to the mine overlook. It's an impressive pit! It seems like a lot of the old mining towns have nice historic areas , and Ajo was no exception. We enjoyed driving through and looking at the town.
The town plaza reminded us of a town you'd see in Mexico or further south. The town plaza model of city development lends a lot to the sense of place whenever we've seen it. We like the public park, surrounded by churches, libraries, and businesses.
