Revision: Monuments Found

Joaquin Miller funeral pyre

Joaquin Miller’s “funeral pyre,” which he built himself.

I’ve revised my description of the Joaquin Miller History Loop after revisiting it and realizing that, by turning back briefly at one point and taking a different fork at another, you can see all of Miller’s monuments quite easily. The view from the Pyramid to Moses is not to be missed, and well worth climbing a few dozen feet to see. (The cheater-pants method, which involves less climbing, would involve starting from Sanborn Drive and taking the right fork instead of the left when you get to the loop near the Native Plant Nursery.)

The Sanborn Drive gate was mysteriously locked this morning (9:30-10 a.m. Sunday), but the paths themselves were being used by hardy spirits, some of whom simply parked along Joaquin Miller Road and walked in.
