T.S. Elliot just always seems so appropriate for the Mojave desert. No sun this day, though.
The images are from remains of an F-4D Phantom that crashed in the Crucero region of the Mojave Desert over 40 years. ago. I find it amazing that so much of the wreckage is still in place, and I have to wonder why the military never cleaned it up. We were able to locate the crash site a few weeks ago while taking 27 other jeeps on a tour of the area. It was overcast most of the day, and it rained hard while we were at this crash site. Not the best day for photography, but I think in this case it adds to the mood of the images.
P.S. - I know that I was supposed to post the images from Inscription Canyon and finish that trail report. To be honest, I got caught up in researching Native American rock art, and then found a scientific imaging program for the enhancement of rock art and have been playing around with that a bit. Rather than wait any longer to post while I organize my thoughts and images, I figured it was best to just keep moving along with some of the others images I've been creating.
Nothing after the jump.
