Roadside memorial - a statement of grief and love from the loved ones.

Interesting roadside memorial in the middle of nowhere, easily missed.

I’ve been mulling over the idea of developing a book that is filled with pictures of roadside memorials, and the story behind each one.  It’s been in the back of my mind for years now. So, here’s the first pic I took. I saw it today while walking with my daughter.  Book to come!!

Some details of a new cross with re-bar through each of the sides making this one very heavy and very sturdy.

I post a lot of shrines but I don’t post a lot of wrecks. A few days ago this was a Toyota Corolla, almost every roadside shrine starts here. I’ve been doing this my whole life and I’m not young anymore. Remember that. Remember that when you are on the road. Pay attention to what you are doing and pay attention to what’s happening around you. Because when the result is this it really does not matter who’s fault it was.  #flagstafftowingandrecovery #descansos #descansado #wrecks #keeptherubbersidedown #roadsideshrines #roadsidememorial #safefortheholidays #holidaydriving #mydissapearingwest #highdesertmystic #thehighway #prayersfromthehighway #bloodintheasphalt #tolsunbooks

I don’t know if this is my first shopping cart shrine or the scene of the wreck.

A straight piece of road. A good surface. Two lanes in either direction. Well marked. What happened here? #memorial #roadsidememorial. #cross #death
Today Veronica Madrical’s shrine stands in front of hundreds of acres of November roses. There is not a lot of rest out here in the dust today. Not a lot of peace either. I’m coming to understand that we prefer to wipe away our inconvenient truths. As they say in Indian Country - No Thanks, no Giving. That’s what my mind is chewing on this morning out here by Semi Tropic and California DOC at Wasco. #wascostateprison #nothanksnogiving #toadtrip #instagramstories #dontforgettoputrosesonmygrave #descanso #roadsideshrine #roadsidememorial #tolsunbooks #bloodintheasphalt #prayersfromthehighway #highdesertmystic #mydissapearingwest

Old Bakersfield Highway just past Dixie - Photographs, candles, superheroes, and a rushed wooden cross out of survey stakes. There’s not too many shrines that feel ominous to me but this one is the exception. Idk what happened but everything about this little chainlink corner of the ghost of California 58 feels heavy. This story ain’t over... #descansos #descansado #roadsideshrine #roadsidememorial #justice4jamie #highdesertmystic #mydissapearingwest #nhdc1400

I-40 westbound at Rattlesnake Wash - Kingman city limits. Daniel Felix Ruiz gone 5 years on 7-28-18. His people returned this summer and placed this fresh new helmet on his old wooden cross out here in the desert.

Driving on the Crosstown, passing by the scene of a deadly bicycle and car crash from a couple of weeks ago and noticed a memorial of flowers, a beer and paint brush. Didn’t cover the original scene. But, reporter Angela Brown and I did a follow up story with an officer with Charleston Police Department’s traffic enforcement team. The car’s driver is accused of being drunk. The victim was 59 year old Thomas Garrett. Wondered if Garrett was a painter. #tvnewslife #photoglife #tvnewsphotojournalist #memorial #roadsidememorial #charleston

MJ’s "With A Child's Heart" has been playing in my head since I crossed paths with this 2 year old commemoration of a 17 yr old Dallas area athlete killed by a hit & run driver on  October 28, 2016. I was enroute to my allergist 20 miles out of town. This spot is a mile from my destination. It’s hard for me to define the pull to investigate the scene of living flowers & fall decor and flattened cross and cherubs and teddies and angels standing watch in a field of dying grass. Why did I remember to go back after my appointment? Why didn’t I just keep going straight away to home? #iAM someone who believes I must pay attention to everything I’m attracted to. It’s inconvenient & embarrassing sometimes, but I got it right today. With a child’s heart. I don’t know how else I would have discovered the boy whose life memory marks this spot. But I needed to know. I don’t yet know why.  I called the police department to ask if the hit & run driver ever came forward. After holding for minutes.. “We don’t know anything about that.” I didn’t expect that response. That child IS eternity now. No matter what’s happening in the town of #sunnyvaletx or maybe #mesquitetx, or within this young mans family.. I’m feeling strongly there’s an unexpected avenue finding somethings out. Will I do it? If Spirit tells me to. #jackierockswellness🧘🏽‍♀️ #writersofinstagram #roadsidememorial #cherub #angela #childreninheaven #17yearsold #withachildsheart #loa #thesecret #spiritualmatters #spirit #wellness #spiritualwriter #intuitive #empath #claircognizance

TRAVELLERS ASKED TO CARE FOR LIVING MEMORIAL 💧✝️🌷 I passed little Lisa Munro's roadside memorial just a couple of hours after her dad had planted a desert rose at the site. She was 6 when she died in a car accident there. There's a drum of water nestled in a nearby tree with a hose that drip feeds the plant. Passers-by are invited to top-up the drum. 
Lisa's cross is one of four within a 10km stretch near the Willare Bridge Roadhouse in the Kimberley, about 150km north of Broome. It can be a lonely stretch of road which only compounded the tragedy in 2003. Help after the accident was a long time coming. Lisa died two hours after the single vehicle accident, before medical help arrived.😥 Every cross, every grave and every cemetery have stories to tell. It's up to us to listen.

Roadside Memorial 13 and 5. I have been using Quikrete, personal letters, encaustic, and a lot of different found materials. Many more photos to come of other crosses along with other tombstone forms. Eventually, all the sculptures will be installed together.

Jaime C Hernandez, murdered, 1987-2018

His cross says "Remember Me." i hope people do. no one ever deserves to be murdered and then have their body dumped along a desert road.

Jaime's cross was erected at the top of a fence surrounding a junkyard in Barstow.
