You need to contact Chuck Goodenough through the Friends of Burro Schmidt and let him know you have this. The Friends should have first rights to anything that was up at Burro Schmidt's so they can evaluate any historical significance and preserve it. www.burroschmidttunnel.org Thanks- I'll do that.

I got a message in a round-about way that this photo was in the lower outhouse at the Burro Schmidt tunnel just before the place was trashed. With such a prominent place of display he must have been special in some way. :flush: :biggrin: If anyone has an interest in such desert flotsam they are welc...

This will liven it up even more:
You would get slimy snow. Gasoline doesn't burn, gasoline vapors do- and gas will not vaporize at 32'F.

Anybody know who this is?

This is a scan of a pic I found blowing in the wind, downwind and down canyon from the BS tunnel. It's a 5 X 7 color print, crudely framed in cardboard, and wrapped in a clear 3-ring binder page cover. He looks like an old desert fellow of Norse descent. http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1599/8205299...

I'd guess that someone was advertising Jeeps or mental health medication- maybe both. :biggrin:
Ive seen this picture before too. I thinking it was a long time ago in a Popular Mechanics magazine ad.

DV Parrots?

A friend and I saw something a little different yesterday- a flock of about 100 parrots flying through the edge of DV. They came out southbound, roughly between the White Swan and Saline Valley Road, and disappeared from view at about Black Spring. I don't know for sure what kind they were. They wer...

Some of the best ones aren't on any maps or guides. No one will even admit that they exist. :shock: Oops. Now I've done it. I could be shot for even suggesting such a notion. I better go to my favorite one this weekend, shoot a limit of chukar and mountain quail, (all the cabins are not in the park)...

It was cool. This is the only other shot that turned out. My camera seems to need to think about taking a picture before it will actually happen. The moving shots turned out to be landscapes. http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1599/8205299/18138141/296701088.jpg The rehabber asked me if I wanted to ho...

This Golden Eagle is 3 minutes from ending 3 years in rehab. Right after this shot he lost the leather jesses and got a numbered leg band. A real photographer could have gotten some amazing shots.

The first reported chunk was found in a yard in Hesperia on New Year's Eve. That's better than a observation.

You may find that folks are fairly tight-lipped about these cabins. Being a public forum there's just no control over who might be lurking- and most of these cabins are special to those who use and maintain them. I don't think everyone will throw too many rocks at me if I suggest going to a BLM offi...

Thanks for the response Scott. I would also tend to think that some moron was feeding it. This kind of thing is virtually unheard of with bobcats unless they're rabid or tame.

Bobcat attack?

Did anyone hear anything about the person attacked by a bobcat at Furnace Creek? Seems kind of weird. :???:
