Anyway, I suggested we cache our way to Cali and my mom was game.
Our first stop was a virtual in Quartzsite, Arizona.
It was the Tomb of Haidji Ali aka “Hi Jolly.”
The last camp of Hi Jolly, born somewhere in Syria about 1828 / Died at Quartzsite December 16, 1902 / Came to this country February 10, 1856 / Cameldriver - packer - scout - over thirty years a faithful aid to the U.S. government. Arizona Highway Department, 1935. (More info on Hi Jolly).
After farting around a bit in Quartzsite we hopped the border into California. Or first stop was the Blythe Airport/old army base - where we almost missed this close to “illegal” geocache. Though it isn’t truly buried, it is submerged. A little “iffy” in my mind… but I’ll let it slide for a smiley!
Hope you had a Happy Fourth of July!
