Chloride, Arizona - USA

I’m excited to join up again this month with fellow blogger Fiona Ryan's  A-Z Guidebook Travel Linkup over at Tiffin Sized Bites. This travel tale link-up goes from August 15th - August 22th, this time travels with the letter "C".

"C" is for Chloride, Arizona. Chloride is considered an almost ghost town, with a population of ~200. It was silver mining camp founded 1863 near the Cerbat Mountains and is the oldest continuously inhabited mining town in Arizona.

An interesting thing waits in the mountains about a mile outside of Chloride proper. In 1966, artist Roy Purcell took to the Cerbat Mountains and painted "The Journey," a 2000-square-foot set of murals on rock face. His work was is in the abstract Modernism tradition, and helped launch his professional career.

The vivid colors Purcell used to paint his murals have withstood harsh desert weather for nearly four decades and just recently in 2006 were repainted. They stand as an interesting complement and contrast to the Petroglyphs of Native American artists that have withstood centuries in these beautiful mountains.
