All about Ashley Pond

-A A +A

Dear Editor:
   The original pond would collect water in the wet months, and it could be useful, especially for livestock and wildlife, and if fortunate in the winter it would have enough ice to cut blocks from for the ice house.  In the early 20s, a pipe was built from Los Alamos Creek and a pump installed so that the pond could be kept deeper and prevented from turning into a mud pit in the dryer months.  The Los Alamos Ranch School was in a continual process of improving its property and the effectiveness of its operations.  The depression that we play on, and sit upon, and watch kids roll downward on represents the depth of the pond when water was pumped from the canyon.
