  • This photograph was taken at the Pima Canyon Trailhead at South Mountain in Phoenix. This inscription has been often and wrongly attributed to Friar Marcos De Niza in his search for one of the lost cities of gold.
  • It is probably a modern forgery, close to 1930, adding forged Fray Marcos de Niza signature to a partial reproduction of the inscription found on "Inscription Rock" at El Morro, New Mexico.
  • See: Katharine Bartlett and Harold S. Colton, "A Note on the Marcos de Niza inscription near Phoenix, Arizona" Plateau vol.12, n°4, April 1940, p.53-59.
