Dead Tree

The tree was outside the fenced area of a tourist lookout spot. It was taken about 6:30 a.m. as I recall. I scanned it into my computer from a 35 mm slide taken during a 1952 camping trip.

There are about 50,000 ancient petroglyphs in two canyons that are on a US Naval military base. You can only visit by contacting the Maturango Museum in Ridgecrest and signing up for one of their guided tours. Well worth it. Because of the weather,...
