There’s a large hill, or small mountain across the desert a ways that has a cross on top. You can only see if from our area if you know where to look. I decided to see if i could find the trail up to it. After scrambling aroud a bit without finding the trail, I figured to just head for the top on the least vertical part of the mountain.
It was a partly cloudy day and the pictures were dull. This is the view toward the South. Not much out there but desert and atv trails.
And the view Eastward back toward Quartzite.
The cross itself is only about five feet tall. Nothing to tell about who placed it there that I could find.
Dome Rock in the background.
On the way down i saw this little guy, or gal. Showing off, if only two inches high.
On another afternoon we strolled through the real flea market of Quartzite. No new stuff here, but there were some good looking used items.
And then, there was stuff. How about an old water pump, or some disk blades?
Wagon wheels or pop art?
Lots of old iron for sale.
Bathtubs and barbed wire. Just so you know, that ball of wire was priced at $50.00.
Homemade toys and milk cans.
Even a sleigh.
And, if you didn’t see exactly what you were looking for, there were dozens and dozens of these bins you could dig through.
There’s definitely something here one could put to use, if they only looked hard enough…jc
