Here is last night's sunset.
This morning's hike was in search of Quartz crystals as this is what the area is known for and called Crystal Hill. While wandering around I came across this. I doubt they hauled the body all the way in here to bury it. Most likely the ashes are here. The cross was made of metal. Her age was close to mine, a year older. Makes you think. She probably liked this area and wanted to rest here for eternity.
These saguaros were growing out from almost solid rock.
Here is a little grove of cholla. You don't want to get too close.
The object is to locate an outcropping of white Quartz then amongst it all try to find a rare clear crystal or at least a somewhat clear one. The problem is the area has been picked cleaned over the years and no digging is allowed, so it's a challenge.
After all my looking and walking I did find one that was a little bit translucent so I'll take that.
