After breakfast, I headed down our road to the west to visit a cemetery Dolly and I had seen the other day when we were looking for a boondocking spot. The name of it is Darby Well Cemetery and looked to be mainly Mexican names on the wooden crosses and not very old. The oldest dates I could read were 1958 up to the present.

After the visit to the cemetery, I continued west down the dusty rough road. I call this mountain “Ole Two Fingers”. I can see it from everywhere I go, so it is my guide to find my way back home. Don’t want to get lost out here. There are so many roads going in different directions and each can go for miles, seemingly to nowhere.
Everywhere you look, there are steep rugged mountains and cacti. Add the clear blue skies and it is hard not to keep clicking the camera. Sorry to bore you with all the sameness. Just can’t seem to get the beauty I see around me in photos. Drove right through an Ocotillo Cacti grove. Drove past “Ole Two Fingers” as I headed further west. The road goes on and on. Looking back at “Ole Two Fingers” from the west side of it.
I wonder if this is a Crested Saguaro I see off in the distance? I came to a locked fence and can go no further in the jeep. Beyond the fence is Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge. I had heard that there was a mica mine on a mountain that had a white streak across the side of it and on the other side of a locked fence. Could this be it?
See you later.
