Bath, Bed, and Laundry
The bathroom cabinet is stocked with towels, facecloths, soap, tissues, and a first-aid kit.
The bedrooms are supplied with sheets, pillows, quilts, and blankets (down comforter during the chilly months).
We provide window fans during the summer months.
The laundry room at the GWH has a washer and a dryer, and is equipped with laundry detergent and bleach.
There is no television reception at either House, but a VCR and videotapes on birding
and other natural history topics (plus a couple of cowboy movies), and an extensive and growing library
of field guides, books about Southwestern flora, fauna, history, and culture, and some mindless novels
provide a pleasant substitute to the evening news. Several games and puzzles are on the bookshelf as
well. The closest source of a local newspaper is the Rodeo Grocery, in Rodeo, New Mexico, fifteen miles
from here. USA Today is available at the Portal Store.
Gas is available in San Simon, Arizona, and Animas and Lordsburg, New Mexico. Please plan accordingly. We do not keep gas on hand. Rule of thumb is to gas up when down to a quarter tank no matter where you are.
