Vintage Photo

From my husband's family album, this picture from the late 1950's, taken by his father, shows how the bandstand at the courthouse was decorated back then.

Below, you can see how it looks in more recent times.

While all the trees are now bare, this willow tree is still holding on even with freezing night temperatures . I posted this tree back in February because it was all leafed out so early in the year and here it is now ten months later. There must be something about this spot because the grass is still green under it too.

Old West Photos

You can dress up in old western clothes for a photo shoot here. I think the white sign in the lower right is kind of odd.

Their web page says "Dog friendly art house or art friendly dog house". 
Another of those McCormick Street houses that tend to change often. 
It used to be a different art gallery that you can check out by clicking here.

Foggy Morning

Yesterday we woke to heavy fog. That's a rare thing in our part of the world so I went out to enjoy it.

For The Travelers

An old house on Mc Cormick Street in Prescott has seen many uses. It seems it is something new every year. The last time I took a picture of it it looked a little different. Click here to see how it looked then.

I like to go into books stores like this. I like browsing the shelves to see what treasures I can find. This is the Old Sage Book Store in downtown Prescott.

Creek Dragon Revisited

I decided to go see if the dragon carving by Granite Creek was still there. It is, but looking a bit worn.  You can check out the post from August of 2009  here.

Just Another Tree

Most of the trees are bare by now but there are still some showing off their fall color.

This just made me laugh. Did you ever see those plastic, moving owls to scare away the pigeons?
 I saw this on on top of a business and thought it was pretty funny. I think they like it.

Dramatic Sculpture

A dramatic sculpture stands in the middle of the small town of Reserve, New Mexico.
The man depicted is Elfego Baca, a lawman, who became famous after the "Frisco Shootout".  

The story is told on the plaque below.  Click on the picture to make it bigger. 

If you are interested and can't read the plaque pictured here, you can find several web sites using his name or by using Frisco Shootout.
