ambushed
by HAZ_Hikebot

Roadside marker inscription - In Memory of two of the many pioneers who brought law, order, and safety to the Gila Valley. Lorenzo and Seth Wright were killed 1 mile north of this spot by Indians who had stolen 45 horses from early settlers. While pursuing the Indians they were ambushed Dec. 1, 1885 (marker placed in 1938).

An old high clearance dirt road north of the marker takes you 0.75 miles across the desert floor to the ambush marker.
