In May of 2008, we had the good fortune to visit numerous attractions in Utah. A cross is located beside the dirt road leading to Mexican Hat Rock and we have had our curiosity piqued ever since. We have contacted numerous places in hopes of gathering any information pertaining to this lone, solitary cross in the middle of God’s country which someone took the loving time to erect. However, our efforts have proved fruitless so far. We are hoping that you might be generous enough and with the knowledge to provide some information about the cross.
Who was Ginny Roberts? How old was the person? We assume it was a female. When and/or why was the cross erected? Is the cross the unfortunate location of a fatal accident or simply a “memorial” to someone who loved the area? Is there any significance to the stuffed toy frog (appears to be Kermit) at the base of the cross?
Due to responses from our Internet searches, there would seem to be many others who have encountered the cross and are equally curious. Your tourist department might be inclined to add this “curiosity” to be among their informational literature for future tourists. I realize that many locations across the country have “memorial” crosses erected along the roadside by loving survivors; however, we find this location rather intriguing.
Any information you might be able and willing to share will be greatly appreciated. Or, if you have any suggestions for further research, we would appreciate that also. You may email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We thank you in advance for your consideration and time regarding this inquiry.
