Mescal, AZ: A Pictorialby Jim Gressinger on Aug. 23, 2012, under Southern Arizona Ghost Towns, Southern Arizona History & Culture, Things To Do With The Kidz
I had been waiting months to return to Mescal and photograph the old place with dramatic monsoon clouds. I had photographed it in the spring, but the sky was clear and not all that interesting.
Yesterday late afternoon, Neighbor Roy & I trekked out there to meet Frank Brown, the caretaker, and see if we could get off a couple of dramatic shots.
All this past week the late afternoon sky has been dark & menacing … just what I was looking for. Yesterday … not so much. Nevertheless, here are a few shots to share. We’ll go back next week if the monsoon cooperates.
