i explored more around this old homestead out near Lake Pleasant on Sunday.








it's set down in a beautiful remote canyon.




there are several seeps in the canyon walls nearby.




and a tiny deposit of some sort of crystal-like mineral on one wall.




some neat old vehicles.




this big dump rig is forever stuck in the sand.








these 2 little guys were running around the canyon like a couple of rambunctious puppies.




the smallest one came over to see what i was up to.





the whole place has a spooky vibe to it though...


i was imagining a small happy family living here. one day their little girl accidentally broke this mirror while playing, bringing the whole family horrible luck and tragedy for 7 years...




...maybe the mine claim behind their house dried up. then one night the whole canyon flooded, washing away their livestock and most of their possessions...


...the little girl could have caught pneumonia and of course they couldn't get their old van running to get out to a doctor in time, so she passed away...




...after a few more hard years, the mom would have left for the city to escape the rough life and painful memories...


...and that's when the dad would have lost all hope. maybe this knocked-over chair under the tree out front was where his story ended.

no, he scampered away as quick as he came over - him and his brother were playing around all wild just like when our cats get crazy
