Weather her now is perfect. Low 80's, but today windy and more cool weather coming in during the week. Then it should return to normal. Hot.
But back to our trip to see the murals. Bill took his drone up see it here in this picture. But the sun was directly above him so he couldn't really see what it was filming. Anyway the video is at the end of this post.
There he is. The camera on the drone projects on a tablet or cell phone screen. Problem is can't see either when in the sun.
Just more pictures of the paintings. These were done with paint in a can and brushes - not spray graffiti. The artist, Roy Purcell, was at one time the curator of the Southern Nevada Museum in Henderson. And his paintings are sold in many places.
The rocks and brush made it hard to get good shots of some of them.
Just kind of a broad view. Those boulders are huge. See the red snake coiling around.
Closer look at the detail in the snake.
One of these I think is the fertility goddess. Not sure which one.
Her maybe? There are foot prints on many of the rocks.
I like the views of the buildings with the bushes and blue sky. He did similar paintings in a couple of places.
Can see the lady standing up in this one.
See how small the car looks.
The road continuing on past the murals. Don't think we'll go that way.
I can't remember if I posted this or not. I really don't remember seeing it. But I must have to take its picture.
A squiggle and more foot prints.
OH! The snakes head.
A closer look at the buildings and brush.
Time to say good bye. We both think we want to go back there again. Here is a great article about Roy Purcell. Worth the read. He has done so much more than the murals.
Scenery heading back towards the little town of Chloride. A very interesting town, for sure worth another visit. Will post some pictures from there next time.
This is the drone video. Again click here to see it full screen.
We drove around and had lunch at a restaurant there. Very interesting.
On this trip I also took some pictures related to Bill's new (old) hobby. So more on that later too.
Please continue to comment, I will publish them within a day. Just too much spam being posted here now.
