A hundred plus miles North of Reno, Nevada, way past the Smoke Creek Desert is the hamlet of Gerlach.
Gerlach is not much more than a wide spot in the road. Few people live there. I think there are more jack rabbits than humans.
But there are these strange man-made assemblages. I’m not sure if they are warnings, prophecies or art. Maybe they are all three.
This is a lonely place. It is spiritual in nature. The absence of droning crowds fosters great introspection.
STEP UP AND SEE THE IMAGE OF GOD
LEAVE YOUR HANGUPS HERE
IT'S A HAZARD
ELVIS PRESLEY- ROCKIN' THE ANGELS
THE ARROW MARKS THE SPOT
APHRODITE MOTHER OF ALL THINGS
DON'T OVERLOAD YOUR ASS
SEEK NOT FAME, LET IT FIND YOU
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT- IT'S WHAT YOU ARE SEEING
