Desert City

While out in California late last year with Adam Gorightly, Andy Colvin, Greg Bishop and Robert Larsen, I was amazed to see this huge, sprawling and decidedly strange creation just sitting in a remote part of the desert.

Basically, it's a gigantic shrine to God, complete with various winding pathways, little cave-like rooms, and an abundance of rock-paintings and carved features.

I was trying to think what it reminded me of, but I think Robert Larsen got it spot-on when he said it looked like a multi-colored version of the ape-city in the original 1968 Planet of the Apes movie with Charlton Heston!


  1. I <3 how the mound between the G & the O make a big wang pointing to the sky.

    5..4...3...2...1... Ok, no lighting smiting me from above. He/She does have a sense of humor after all ;)

  2. Hello, I'm trying to find this exact location. Any chance you could point me to the coordinates or google maps directions?
