Quartzsite Things to Do: 6 reviews and 11 photos
The Red Ghost legend comes from one of Hi Jolly's free roaming camels had died and it would attack campers at night with a skeletal remains of a driver still strapped to its back. Some variations is that Hi Jolly himself was searching for his last favorite came and that he died looking for it and was found with his arms drapped over its neck.
There is a vault at the base of Hi Jolly's Memorial with the remains of Topsy one of the camels that came from Hi Jolly's herd that died 1934 at the Garefield Zoo in Los Angeles. It is believed that his herd is still alive and roaming. Maybe it is or maybe not. Still makes for a good yarn.
