Earthquake / Vallecito Valley - Part 2 - ABDSP

Here is Part 2 of my trip, for Part 1 look here

After a long day of kicking cactus and pulling rocks out of my boots I had a few ice cold beers and ate some late lunch. 5pm was still early in the day for summer so I hoofed it up to the Marshal South Home location. I was sorta half out of it and was taking pictures with the lens hood on and twisted sideways so forgive the black corners.

For more information about the Marshal South Home check out this documentary website:

Buy the book, it is a very interesting story, I guarantee it!

Looking at the rear of the home ruins from inside the house. The front of the house actually faces east, not west

Old sun dial, I have seen older photos that show an actual rectangular piece and not just a bolt so this may just be leftovers
Crude sundial. I have seen pictures in Desert Magazine that show a rectanglular peice instead of a bolt used to cast the shadow n the rock

Some cool rock shelters
