And I haven’t even gotten to the part where you see why they named it what they did.


  1. Damn it, now you’ve got me itching to go through my photos of Mosaic Canyon. I was trying to take a little break!

  2. It’s all very alien looking, isn’t it?? They’re amazing photos, but the first one is evil and must be destroyed before it takes over the world.
    You heard it here first.

  7. I seem to remember that place. There was a time you could spot my mother all over the southwest in her Mercury Station Wagon, pulling a robin’s egg blue war surplus 1943 Jeep.
    Mom was a rockhound, you see. My school vacations were spent being donkey labor. We made Death Valley a few times but most impressive, to me anyway, were the trips to Calaveras County and the acres of green serphantine rock where the only thing that grew was where the river mud had collected in holes, turning into dirt when the river went down.

    Oddly there was still a little gold in those holes back in the late fifties and early sixties, if one’s back is stout enough to pan it.

    Those old gold miners must have been tougher than woodpecker lips, even as a boy goldpanning gave me a backache.

  8. I’ve always been a rockhound, Peter. I’ve actually had trips where I had to put rocks BACK because I didn’t have enough room.

    Sounds like you had a great childhood and a very cool mom.
