Every time I see these flowers I think of those little orange and yellow Halloween candies.

We visited The Shrine of St. Joseph in Yarnell on Friday. The fire went through there but the statues all survived but some of the trees were burned or scorched and the wood cross on this one had burned away leaving the statue. The Shrine was built in 1939. Several buildings at the shrine burned down completely.

I was able to get closer to the sculpture the day after the memorial service.
There were still a few people coming to take pictures and talk to the firefighters who were there helping with taking down and cleaning up after the service.
I have heard that the sculpture will be relocated to fire station 7 in Prescott.
This group of firefighters from Flagstaff were busy cleaning around
the outside of the building but stopped long enough to pose for a picture.

I went back and got some close up shots of the sculpture that I posted yesterday. This one shows the shovel and the decapitated rattlesnake.
I do have to say, I am not as brave as this woman. On the rare occasions that I have seen a rattlesnake, I have left them alone and moved out of striking distance as fast as possible.

The new sculpture at the Prescott Valley Town Hall called 'Not So Gentle Tamer' was installed this week. It depicts a a woman who has just beheaded a rattlesnake with her shovel. The artist is Bob Boze Bell and it was sculpted by Deb Gessner. I will post a few more pictures of this sculpture in the near future.
