A Heap of Broken Images

A heap of broken images, where the sun beats...

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.
