Point of Rocks
We wandered around these pointy little hills on a winter day quite a few years ago Using some old roads at times, then going cross country, we made a loop heading first east, south, then northwest back to our truck parked along the Upham- Engle Road( now the Spaceport Road). Found a few old foundations, a few prospects as well,their histories unknown to us. I have read that there is a rock art site here as well, perhaps a reason to revisit another winter day. A lonely, forgotten place now,but it was part of the Jornada del Muerto stretch of the Camino Real.
