Rolling Cabin

It's unique, it has solar power and it's for sale! This is one of the first things we saw as we came into the tiny town of Stanton. The middle window is the one I did the close up of in my post yesterday.

Wednesday Window....Spicy

Although it looks a bit odd in this picture, this really is a window. 
You will have to check back tomorrow to find out what kind of place this window is in.

Hotel Stanton

Continuing our visit to Stanton, this building is close to the office building that I featured in Friday's post. Now used as a library and game room for the RV park, this building has a sign that identifies it as the old hotel.

Welcome To Stanton

This guy welcomes visitors in front of the building that I featured yesterday in Stanton, Arizona.

Only a few miles from the Octave Mine that I featured yesterday is the tiny town of Stanton, Arizona. Once a bustling gold mining town, the old buildings are now surrounded by an RV park. If you go into the office and sign a release, you can wander around the old buildings and take pictures. 

A few people asked how the Octave mine got it's name. The only thing I found on the name said that there were eight partners who owned the mine which is why they named it Octave.

Octave Mine

Just at the foot of Yarnell Hill is a gravel road that takes you to the Octave Mine.  There was once a town called Octave here but now there isn't much left of the old town.

There are several gold mines in this area and some are still being worked.
The Octave Mine was recently featured on the television show
 "Ghost Mine". It seems the mine owner would like to get the crew that is working the mine in Baker, Oregon to come and work the Octave in the winter months.

This is the Animal Clinic where we found the elephants in my post from yesterday. I use the plural because there is a baby elephant that was hiding behind the mother.

Elephant Crossing

An unexpected sign in our area.

You wouldn't expect to see an elephant by the Peeples Valley Veterinarian office. 
Peeples Valley is just a few miles from Kirkland Junction. It was named for A.H. Peeples, who was the leader of the group that discovered Rich Hill, a gold deposit near Weaver, Arizona, in 1863.

Wagon Train

While on a road trip we came across a little parade in a small town so we stopped to watch. I was happy to get to see this team of beautiful Belgian draft horses pulling these wonderful old wagons.

I took this out the car window because I thought that dark cloud in front of the white fluffy ones looked strange.

Pictures From Away....Little Bighorn Battlefield

Custer National Cemetery at Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana. 

A visit to this Monument is a thought provoking and sobering experience.

A Visit To Prescott

I saw four of the Mesa Police motorcycles parked in downtown Prescott on Halloween. I didn't see them but I bet the riders were dressed up like policemen.

In case you were wondering, they ride Kawasaki motorcycles.
