Copyright © 2010 John Game

  • date of photo  May 9, 2010
  • location   Sunrise Rock, near Cima Dome, Mojave Desert (San Bernardino County, California, US)
  • notes   This is the cross in the Mojave Desert that became the subject of intense legal battles concerning separation of Church and State, leading to a Supreme Court ruling in spring 2010 permitting it to remain in place. This photograph was taken while I was studying plants in the area on the evening of May 9 2010, just hours before the cross was stolen, making national headlines.
