The fisherman is an intaglio (geoglyph or earth figure), a large figure created in the soil by Indians many years ago.

Plomosa Road ( off Hwy 72 in Bouse) is also referred to as the "Quartzsite Scenic Route".

|Scenic site looking NE from Swansea Ghost Town in the 16,400-acre Swansea Wilderness. This is a computer enhanced photograph taken from one of the many 4-wheel drive trails - all the color and mountains are real! only the texture has been added. Excellent area for jeep rides, photographs & wildlife. Herds of wild burros roam this area. First time travelers should enter the wilderness from Bouse / Plomosa Rd. © by Sandy|
