The "Joseph Salazar" mentioned in the story once studied at Taliesin. Over the years TAA and architects trained there have worked on many highway projects around the nation ... including parts of I-70 in Colorado (west of Denver), and the 101 Freeway east of Scottsdale.

The site of Ocatillo is slightly more than a half-mile north of the new freeway.
On a Google map of Ahwatukee, the site forms a long, narrow, brown oval located between East Mtn Vista on the north and East Frye Road on the south... and between 30th Street on the west and 32nd Street on the East. Every single house in the area backing up to the site on all sides, has a blue pool placed against the oval. It's the most bizarre sight imaginable.

The site of the San Marcos Hotel is about a mile and a half farther north ... and about a half-mile west ... near the end of South Canyon Drive.

Speaking of the Ocatillo, Ocatilla, Ocotillo, (anymore spellings?) Desert Camp, some threads from the pre-outage mists:

While FLW spelled it Ocatillo, Wikipedia spells it Ocotillo, and pronounces it with long 'O's and a Spanish 'J' for the double 'L' ... which is to say, 'H' with an attitude.

H ? How bizarre. Here's another online source, found by Googling "ocotillo definition":
