This stop would be a complete waste of time, because it's nothing more then a upgraded piece of graffiti sprayed on rocks. Should you decide to visit it anyway, because you have too much time on your hands or whatever, make sure you have a...More
This is a really spectacular quick stop and the paintings are preserved quite well. I was worried about the road but it was totally passable and I was able to drive right up -- even with a light drizzle.
If you've made it to Chloride, you might as well visit Roy Purcell's murals. You may want to pass, though, unless you're driving a four-wheeler. The dirt road is a little over a mile out of town and quite bumpy and washed out in one...More
Take the turn at Grasshopper Junction to Chloride for a break form going 80 MPH on US 93 after you lost all your Vegas Cash or on your way there to do just that! Nice living ghost town with friendly spirits ready to serve you...More

Our understanding is that Roy is not Native American, though he does incorporate some Native American and mythic imagery in his work. He did paint the murals near Chloride, Arizona while taking a break from working on his Masters degree in Creative Writing and Fine Arts at Utah State University, and he did work in mining, in the area around Chloride. They're great murals on the rocks there, and we love Chloride!
