Ok, we were confused by this site at first, because we could have sworn that Ayers Rock was in Australia, yet here it is, just a few dozen yards from Papalote Encino’s eponymous windmill (the name means ‘oak windmill,’ for those that no hablan español). There was once a spring here that the windmill pulled water from, but it’s gone now, so make sure you bring lots of water.
