A couple years ago I mentioned the cross that was erected in the Mojave desert by the old prospector, Riley Bembry, who lived out there. This story doesn't seem to go away. Here's a news story from 2007 about it that actually includes a rare photo of the cross. Here's a 2005 story about it.
Yesterday I stopped off to take these pics of the cross as it is today. They've kept it covered over the years. It appears to have a relatively new wooden cover on it. I've camped at sunrise rock many times. It's a great location for primitive camping. I've also climbed up to the top of Kessler Peak just to the east of this location.
