Two Faces On Cat Mountain, Tucson Estates 2, Near Ajo & Kinney

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shaped by sun, rain and wind over thousands of years, these two faces stand guard over a 375 acre Boy Scouts of America Camp just west of the Ajo Highway on Kinney Road.  When I first saw them, the face on the right reminded me of an Indian brave with long eagle war feathers hanging down the right hand side of his face.  My Darlin' saw the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

The face on the very left looks to me like one of the wise men in St. Luke's gospel, wearing a high turban.  It's interesting how light at various times of year, and at certain times of the day, brings life to our granite cliffs here in the Tucson Mountains.

I think the soul of some old chief resides in the one on the right.

Happy New Year, Mike.

Mike,

I picked up on one of the faces right away and the other one took me a little longer to see.  They could be the sentinals standing guard over the BSA campgrounds.

Happy New Year to you and your family my friend and may 2009 be your best year ever.

Mmmmmm.   The image is clearly in the eye of the beholder.

I just see rock.  Beautiful rock.  That's enough for me. 

Love rock.

Nice shot, Mike!  Yes, light is everything when you are taking a photo or looking at things. It's the difference between good and spectacular.  Happy New Year!

I did see one face immediately.  I've stared a while and can't seem to see the other.  Maybe I'll look another day.  Happy New Year...

Mike - The smaller of the faces is really quite clear.  The larger of the two reminds me of Yoda from Star Wars:-)

I see the same thing Myrl sees, I just didn't think that was it.  So, is that it?
