Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area

9/13/2008 Headed west, through the Sonoran Desert NM (lots of Saguaro cactus) to Yuma and sites in the Yuma Crossing NHA [Yuma Crossing and Associated Sites NHL]. First stop, the Territorial Prison SHP. The prison was built in the 1870s by the prisoners. Saw the prison cells, yard, watch tower and other remaining stuff as well as a museum. Next to the Quartermaster Depot SHP. The depot stored supplies for the military posts throughout the west, brought up the Colorado. Toured a few of the remaining buildings and exhibits in them.
