I put the Camino pics on fototime.com.
If you'd like to see them, go to that website, and enter kingmancruiser@yahoo.com in the Guest entry block.
I quit trying to get them on here. Just not smart enough.

I passed on the wrong info: Enter michael@uneedspeed.net in the Guest login.
Fototime Support was kind enough to correct the errors of my ways.
There are captions, and they aren't necessarily in order.

Thank you for posting your story. My great grandpa traveled the road in 1901 on his way to work in the Fortuna Mine. He went back and forth between the mine and his reservation near Yuma. Your story gave me visuals of conditions my great grandpa traveled in.

Glad you liked it Sylvia.
It'll be awhile until I walk up past the fortuna mine - maybe this Fall.
The terrain is the same though - guess the memories are different.
I'll bet your grandfather had stories to tell.

Good one, Teufel.
It's in the lava bed, and I missed it last time, so. . . no photo.
As I said in the write-up, Nameer is a middle eastern name, I've been told. Interesting that a middle easterner would have such an elaborate lay-out, compared to the others. Guess he was really liked.
It's also good that relatively few gravesites have been damaged or obliterated by the 'travelers from the south'.
Thinking about it makes me want to go on back down.
(Now, if I only had someone who'd drive along. . . . . .)

this was about 3 feet off the road on the left side, and i didnt get it in the pic but there was a cross formed from the same malapai stones they used to form the letters. i was the only one to spot it in our group. they were all looking out in the desert more...
