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.


  1. ha ha!

    loved the 'little house on the highway' too!

    GORGEOUS reds in that top photo!!!

  2. Amazing colours in the first picture:)
    Have a nice day:)
    Greetings from,

  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. :)
