Bird Cage Saloon

The Bird Cage Saloon will soon have a new home on Whiskey Row in Prescott, just a few doors down from where a fire destroyed the old building. I'll get another picture when it's open.

Road Trip


Williams Arizona is about 70 miles northeast of Prescott. The sign says Gateway To The Grand Canyon. Williams is where the depot for the Grand Canyon Railway is located.           

This sign is in a little park as you come into town from the west.

Changing Seasons

When I was young, I didn't pay much attention to the changing seasons. While balancing work and kids and keeping up with the house, there wasn't much time for seasons. Now that I am older and have less to occupy  myself, the changing of the seasons intrigues me. In the mornings I watch to see just where the sun will rise through my east facing windows and I know exactly where it will rise on the morning of the equinox. It's right about that time when less subtle changes start to occur, like the blooming of all the flowering trees in the Spring. Only a few days ago there was snow and frost clinging to the trees. But this tree is white with flowers and sweet fragrance is filling the evening air. This is Spring.

Campfire In The Dells

A couple weeks ago we were at a retirement gathering at Storm Ranch in Prescott.  
I took lots of pictures there and I'll be posting some of them over the next few days.

The cute little calf in the picture 
I posted yesterday was here too.

Cold Gold



It isn't unusual to see someone panning for gold along Lynx Creek in the summer but this fellow was braving the cold of February, panning for gold in the ice and snow.

Hotel Doors

There is a bright reflection in the glass on the doors of the side entrance to the Hotel St. Michael. I wanted to show those great lights on each side of the doors.
