What Lies Beneath

Theme Day....Graffiti

What lies beneath the streets of Prescott.

I saw pictures of this place on Tombo's Blog back in February of 2008, so when I saw what the theme was for October, I decided to find it myself. The entrance was kind of scary looking and I knew the graffiti was far back in the drainage tunnel under the street and I wasn't sure if I wanted to go in there but I noticed a Sheriff's deputy in a parking lot and went over and asked him if he thought it would be safe for me to go in there for some pictures. He decided to go with me and I was glad that he did. Thank you Deputy Anderson and thank you Tom for finding it first and giving a clue as to where it is.

Road Block

While traveling in Northern Arizona across the Hualapai Tribal land on the road to the Havasupai Tribal land, we encountered a road block, with police cars and police dogs and policemen, one of which was our oldest son.
Happy Birthday Roger!

Getting To The River

A helicopter ride down into the Canyon to get to the river revealed breathtaking views.

We were happy to see it return to take us back up to the rim after the cruise on the Colorado River. Grand Canyon West is the home of the Skywalk which is on Hualapai Tribal Land.

Cruising the Colorado River

I took this shot with my little point and shoot camera while cruising the Colorado River at Grand Canyon West. Tomorrow I will post pictures of how we got to the river.

New Puppy

We brought this little boy home on August first. We found him with a rescue group in Phoenix. He had a rough start in life but he is now in his forever home and is a very happy little nine month old. He is keeping us busy and entertained. There are many wonderful shelters and rescue groups with pets that need a second chance. This little guy makes us laugh every day.

Bloggers At The Park

One year ago today, a handfull of bloggers met up at a park in Prescott for a pleasant gab session. This is a picture that I took at the Park that day. The meet up was arranged, as usual by Granny J (Julie) of Walking Prescott. It was the last time we had a gathering. Julie's 'dotter', OmegaMom and 'granddotter' were visiting from Alaska and we all had a nice time talking and laughing. Sadly, while my husband and I were away in May, Julie passed away. Julie is the lady with the white hair at the far table in this picture. We will miss her and her blog.

Del Rio Springs #3

This old barn has been here for many years. It was there 56 years ago when my husband worked on that ranch. At that time the Santa Fe Railroad owned the ranch and Grand Canyon's Fred Harvey leased the ranch from them to raise cattle for his “Harvey Houses” and the Grand Canyon mules were wintered there.

Del Rio Springs

On the side of the road about 22 miles north of Prescott on highway 89, there is a marker that reads as follows;
Del Rio Springs, Site of Original camp Whipple Established December 1863
From January 22 to May 18, 1864 the offices of the Territorial Government of Arizona were operated from tents and log cabins here before being moved to Prescott, The first permanent Capital.

These pictures show how the area looks now.
