Dan and I went for a nice quad ride. It was warm, warm, warm and we were loving it. We decided to go find a place we hadn't seen before. We went to the cabin at Goodman Mine. A Quartzsite pioneer used to live in it. Her name was Angela Scott. This little stone cabin was sitting on top of a hill. At steep hill. It was built just on the top to the other side of the hill facing west. She could see the Colorado River and had a great view. I can't find out anything more on her without going to the Quartzsite Museum and that is closed except for on Thursdays. We won't be here on another Thursday until we come back next "snowbird" season. We couldn't even imagine how she got to her stone house. A horse and wagon couldn't have made it up the hill. We went up on the quad in 4 wheel drive. Here is what it says in a little book called "Stone Cabins".........."We believe this cabin was once lived in by Angela Scott, one of Quartzsite's earliest pioneers. (It says in the book that you can see a picture of her and her family in the Quartzsite Museum.) The cabin has two rooms and it chinked with mud. It has a splendid view of the Colorado River and valley below." I took pictures of the cabin, the mine holes, and the view from the front and back of the cabin. I was outside watching the sunset that night and took what I thought would be a neat picture. I couldn't see the electric wires in the view finder. Its still a neat picture even with the wires.
