Default Got tired while driving so parked and slept over the road

Woke up to...

( scroll down to third post for pictures )

This is one of those examples of sights we take for granted because they are in our stomping grounds and we drive by them on a regular basis. But this was the first time over the course of living In Arizona for 10 years that I’ve got to see “Red Rock Arizona” quite like this..

There is some cool history to this location which goes back to the civil war and a few decades prior to that.


One of them was a battle of confederate soldiers fighting the north, both sides lost so many soldiers just alone to the march to this location to fight that many say when the soldiers finally met, they were both surprised by each other’s numbers and shook hands and decided to turn around and go home, some say there was a huge battle and you can find cannon and pistol rounds in the desert.
but,

Fun fact: I’ve never found anything documented ever pertaining to any evidence of ammo or supplies found on the battle field so, what do you want to believe?


Then there is the story of a group of Indians whom would murder and pillage in tucson and then run to the mountain of red rock and hide out on the top. One time so much as 100 men chased 6 of the Indians up the mountains, took alot of injury from arrows in attempts to climb the mountain, sat below for a entire month, certainly 100 percent confident the Indians had starved they climbed the mountain only to take a few losses in tragic falls and never finding any Indians to attest to their story and reasoning behind why 3 fathers never made it home from this month long excursion... some say the Indians are still up there, some say the Indians quickly went down the backside of the mountain shortly after making the summit... ( the back side is the side pictured in my images ) this would be the north east side of the mountain


Fun story’s but I’ll say this and referring to slot of southern Utah and most of Arizona’s Indian owned landmarks, for some odd reason, you will always find condemned and junky shacks small buildings and live in trailers at the base of the mountains, as if the owners of them give zero Fs about their land and historical history. If anyone has seen Sourh UTAH you know exactly what I mean. Monument Valley is more like demolition asbestos valley

Sadly, the pictures you tried to post are not showing up. How did you try to post them? the easiest way is to do an "advanced post", scroll down below the Miscellaneous Options section, and use "Attach Files", which will allow you to upload them from your computer.

Alrighty! Thanks Jack!

I was wondering if it worked or not due to the fact in another thread I am unable to actually see the pictures on my mobile but I could on my PC. Iíve been away from home for awhile and hadnít been able to see this thread yet on PC ( I do have a pc on board the camper hahaha) but I use it for other things I need while Iím away from my pc at home... you know serious things like gaming

OK, they're there now. Not too many of us camping this time of the year. Those were interesting stories about the history of that area. I kinda think the Civil War story may have had some truth to it. The story about the Indians, maybe not so much.
