'The Journey', Roy Purcell's Cliff Mural

A place I'd first visited in 2003, 'The Journey' is an amazing, psychedelic cliff mural crafted by an artist named Roy Purcell in 1966. The mural lies on the granitic rocks of a shallow canyon on the outskirts of Chloride, Arizona.

As I'd wandered along the base of the mural in 2003, I'd been wow'd by the colors, the theme and the beauty. Now returned in 2008, I was blown away to see that Roy had returned in 2006 to repaint (and therefore, re-color) this amazing piece of 60s art.

It's worth taking a few minutes to Google the story of Roy and his mural.
