“Cross Flash”

NONE

The Winter Solstice was extra special last month for Boyce Thompson Arboretum visitor Keith Story and other photographers who saw and got pictures of this mirror-like reflection shining for a few brilliant minutes and reflecting off the large cross that stands  on a cliff just below the peak of Picket Post Mountain. During the final weeks of December and lasting through the New Year, the bright light was clearly visible if you were standing outside the east entrance of the BTA visitor center, just as you begin walking the main trail, and could be seen each sunny morning at 8:25 a.m. for about five minutes while the angle of the sun was just right. Arboretum staff report “the flash” is also visible when they drive along Highway 60 near milepost 224 for a few weeks during summertime when the angle of the sunrise is just right. Superior residents – have you ever seen this, or photographed it? And do you know who put the cross up there in the first place? Tell us the story – email editor@minersunbasin.com if you know the background of this cross up on Picket Post Mountain. You can also email your own “cross flash” photo to the same address and we’ll post them on the Copperarea Facebook page. (Keith Story photo)
