Personal Experience: We stumbled upon this spot by pure accident one day while on a small hike. One second we’re on the main trail, next thing you know we’re taking a slightly beaten pathway that caught our eye and bam we are greeted with all these amazing art installations. It truly blew me away!
I was awe-struck and beyond intrigued with what their meaning was. Although I have put together some of the puzzle pieces there are still many pieces left to go. I was shocked to find our own architectural graveyard in San Diego because literally a month before finding this spot, we had just visited one in San Luis Obispo!
I do not have much information on this spot yet except for that the installations were created in 1998 and destroyed by a wildfire in the early 2000’s and are part of a Jewish collection. Since then they have slowly begun to fall apart. I am going to refrain from saying much more because I don’t want to send hoards of random people over here to destroy the place. They do plan to rehabilitate it one day. Although it’s a rather sad sight, they are still moving. We hope to one day change the title from graveyard to something symbolizing a revival, but for now, this spot has obviously been neglected for quite some time. All in good time.
Although there is a trail off of a main trail that leads to this spot, I am almost certain that this is private property going by who owns the land. If you go, be aware that you are entering at your own risk. There were no signs saying Private Property when we visited though.
The first thing we stumbled upon were these tiles with scriptures written on them:One day I hope to know the story behind every one of these pieces:Photo by Kayla Brooke:
