Mojave Trails National Monument
Desert MegaphoneIt took a lot of work to have it made in the first place. Fabricated of two 4-foot long megaphone-shaped pieces of iron bolted together the desert megaphone sits high on top of a lonely granite hill deep in the Mojave Desert.
Historians have throughly searched available records, newspaper articles written and now with the internet communication regarding this strange object has increased exponentially, but no one has ever come up with an explanation as to why it is there. Rumor has it that at one time a group would go out there, climb atop the little mountain, stretch a skin over the end and use it for a drum. If true, and for whatever purpose it served, we may never know.
