THE ORDNANCE AREA
View from the Commo Shack of the Ordnance Area, midway between the main camp and down range. The main camp is beyond the mesa, far from this dangerous area. You can see the gravel road snaking down Commo Hill and entering the Ordnance Area. This was the first area to have the Quonset Huts and they were here from the beginning. On the right you can see Nike booster shipping crates neatly arranged. On the slope above them looks like Nike Missile shipping containers. This is where all the missile components came together.
