How do I add air conditioner refrigerant to my 1997 Ford F-150?

I have a known leaky air conditioner on my truck--it holds coolant for about three days before dumping it out altogether. I would be more concerned, if not for the fact that I will only be owning this truck for another week or so as I take it to a climate that will not need A/C. Until then, I need to take a cat with me, so I'd like the A/C to work and want to just dump R134a refrigerant in as I drive.
The following are pictures of my truck's engine. I -think- the valve in the middle picture is the valve I need to connect to, but I am not certain.
