A Little Bit of History

I was able to talk Sinbad into getting inside so we could continue on. I then had to take just one more picture of the deep rich color of the land before leaving the Queen Copper Mine viewing area.

I saw this interesting point of interest, and being a sucker for these things I wheeled the Little House on the Highway into the parking area.



Hmm...I thought. I looked off into the far distance towards Skeleton Canyon
and tried to imagine this scene 125 years ago.

Now a month later, I tried to imagine remembering to clean my lens of all the dust specks.

  3. O, I agree with you about that color. I love that you included your little house on the highway in that photo. isn't it something that the remains of that scene 125 years ago is a tall, chimney-like memorial in the midst of all that vastness? that second photo is just amazing. I guess a whole lot more that Indian warfare ended that day in September 1886. absotively great post.

  4. I love the Apache Stronghold mountains. My profile photo was taken in that area. Love the color in these photos.

  5. Are the colors that bold there?! Wow. I really like the last photo with the barbed wire, space and sky. Very nice composition. Did you get the dust off your lens? Sometimes when I am out, I never notice this until the photo is printed up or I look closer on the screen at home.

  6. Very interesting! The scenery probably looked much the same?

  7. Oh I do like a good historic monument and this one certainly ticks all the boxes. I most certainly would have had to stop and investigate myself. Infact, if like yourself, I'd been driving around in the old home, I would have put the kettle on and contemplated the scene for half an hour with a cup of tea.

  8. Stunning color!
    Lovely landscape and interesting monument. I've done that myself a few times, wondered about the first ones to view a scene. Wonderfully rugged country there, and lol on the dust specks. That's something I'd do...though usually it's water specks. :)
