The argument could be made that this post should have been titled Better Late than Never, primarily due to the amount of time it has taken me to share it. Nonetheless, some things are timeless. Let's hope this is one of them.

As the article states, this isn't information that has been verified, but it does seem rather interesting...
If this is legitimate, it sure seems likely that someone knows the whereabouts of the Mojave Cross and makes it more likely to be found. Stay tuned...

An icon located along a lonely desert road deep in the heart of the Mojave National Preserve is gone.
It's a sad day when a piece of history is destroyed. What's even worse to me is that someone probably had to drive 3 hours or more in order to steal this memorial to fallen soldiers of WWI. It disgusts me to see how despicable some people truly are. I hope the culprits are caught and convicted of this theft. Whoever did this is cowardly and juvenile.
I stopped at the Headquarters of the Mojave National Preserve in Kelso to see what I could find out. I spoke to a handful of employees (I think at least a couple of them were actually volunteers) who indicated that the box covering the cross had been removed sometime Saturday May 8th or Sunday May 9th and the cross was removed sometime during the overnight hours of Sunday or predawn hours Monday May 10th. They told me one of the NPS Law Enforcement Rangers traveled out to Sunrise Rock early today (Monday) to investigate. The NPS personnel I spoke to at the Kelso Depot explained to me that they were not authorized to comment further.

It wasn't until long after I left the Juan Pollo catering trailer in Amboy last weekend that I realized I hadn't taken any pictures of those delicious tacos. In an effort to provide the whole story to my reader(s), I went back to Amboy today for lunch. Oh, the sacrifices I make for my reader(s). Today's catch was one carne asada (beef) taco and one pollo asada (chicken) taco. Lunch was mmmm, mmmm, good.
