Christi and I took a drive around Quartzsite one evening to see what we could see. One of the places we went to was the “Hi Jolly” Monument/Cemetery. Most nomads know “Hi Jolly” as one of the BLM areas available for camping, but it is the name of a man who was a camel driver, among many other things. (More information: http://www.ci.quartzsite.az.us/index.php/2013-01-08-06-33-10/hi-jolly-cemetary-2 and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hi_Jolly) His monument is surrounded by other very old graves–some dating back to the 1800s.
I forgot to include photos of the musical performances (which is a first, I understand) at the RTR. The first, The Status Crowes, were excellent! They took requests and knew many great songs. The next day, Gong Gypsy performed. I heard only a few minutes but the little I caught sounded very relaxing.
I had told some friends about Palm Canyon so off we went after the RTR was over. To my relief, everyone liked it as much as I did. Unfortunately, there were still no mountain sheep sightings but I did see signs of them this time. One might say, this was a “sign of things to come”…
