Cerro Gordo’s owner, Mike Patterson, passed away just months after we met him on our last trip. He’s sorely missed by many, including Cerro Gordo’s caretaker, Robert Desmarais. Desmarais (pictured here) introduced himself simply as “Bob,” and asks that visitors check in with him before exploring the town. He’s knowledgeable and friendly; consider meeting him a trip highlight.
