I often have wondered what happened to Marsha.
This missing person matter is clearly a case for Roosevelt.
I have my own demons from grammar school, the missed opportunities; the only consolation I have is that all those cute little girls are now as old as I am!

Car in the desert photo. Can't place the mountains, maybe west.

Harcuvars, maybe? US 60 west of Wickenburg near Wenden and Salome?

just what I thought when I saw the picture, but hard to confirm....looks like a RR up there on the embankment which would help the US 60 assertion

It's been almost 40 years since I drove US 60, back when it was the way to LA, but there are a couple military training routes that I flew a few times when I was at Luke, one runs between the Harquahalas and the Harcuvars, the other over the Harcuvars. Slightly different perspective at 550 mph versus 55, but the hills looked very familiar. Also, I went to Google Maps Street View, and the hills match up well around Wenden.

I wonder if the folks in the picture realized how much that real estate they're posing on would be worth in a few decades.

When I worked at John Gardiner's Tennis Ranch, about a mile away from the noted landmark in the pic, there was an administrator who couldn't understand why they named it as such. She once stated "Well, it doesn't look like a monkey".

intrigued by this picture as I like to guess exactly where shots like this were taken....

I can't place that rocky bump above the guy on the left's right shoulder...based on the position of the Monk, the setting seems to be about where 44th St curves into McDonald or a bit west of that point, but that bump seems unknown.....I may have to take this shot and line up what features I can and see what I can figure out....

anybody else know where that rocky knob exactly is??.....thanks


EDIT: now wondering if that knob is that knoll right next to the entrance to Echo Canyon next to the corner of Tatum and McDonald....(I need to go look in person and I need to get a life)
