While wandering around in the Mojave Desert of southern California a couple years back, in an area where I've done some gold exploration, MOH and I came across this old drill rig sitting next to a dilapidated and abandoned trailer. The trailer has what I consider typical Mojave coloring; that is, it has a bit of pink as trim. Of course you can find pink-trimmed trailers anywhere, but because of a bunch of rundown and often deserted, tiny adobe shanties along the Amboy Road near Twentynine Palms, many of which were painted pink at last viewing (like this one), I tend to associate that color with Mojave structures of all kinds. Note the creosote and Joshua trees: yes, it's the Mojave. Also note the volcanic rocks of the Hackberry Mountain mining district in the background. (Location: MSRMaps; Google Maps will only take you this far.)
Many of the old rigs you find out in the field, either in fields, deserts, or along the roadside, are old water well rigs, often cable-tool rigs. I can't really say for sure if that's what this is: none of the pictures I found online match exactly, though the cables hanging from the rig and lack of an apparent top-head drive make me suspicious. If anyone knows for sure, please comment!
The cab of the truck is quite colorful.
I can't make out a phone number, in case you're in need of a rig.
