Oddities, Chloride, Arizona
After leaving Chloride City we drove the bumpy road up to the murals. A car could probably make the trip, a rental would be better. But a medium to high clearance vehicle 2WD would be best. The drive is approximately 6-7 miles up the hill, but worth it.
In the 1960s the community was briefly a counterculture magnet, with Roy Purcell, once a hippie artist, leaving behind the Chloride Murals outside of town. The Chloride Murals were restored from their 1960's condition in 2006 by the same artist, now widely known for his western etchings and other art which he refined while working as a curator for the Southern Nevada Museum in Henderson, Nevada and which were sold worldwide from nearby Las Vegas, Nevada casinos and shops.
