Old Governer's Mansion

This is how the governers used to live here in Arizona - See, Prescott was Arizona's first territorial capital. Picture is from the Sharlot Hall Museum.

Sun through Fire

Unfortunately, we are having a 500-acre forest fire in the Crown King area at this time. This is why the sunrise looks like we are in Los Angeles. The air is very smoky and we hope that the fire crews can get it under control asap. It was started by a lost hiker who lit a signal fire, which then turned into a major fire.

Hummingbird in the Air

Hummingbird was approaching a feeder and I was fortunate enough to get a "snappy" - these little birds sure are fast.

Google lives here

My husband and I bought this weaved bird nest almost two years ago and we were almost ready to give up on the thought of having little bird residents in it until today, when I noticed this little "google head" in there.

Mountain Biking - Off Mt. Tritle Road

It is refreshing and fun to let your feet cool off a little in the water as you ride in the summertime - and that is exactly what we do when we can.

Power Lines

At times I am in awe of the powerlines how they stretch across the mountains.

Prickly Pear

This is a very common cactus in our area: prickly pear (Opuntia). The trails by Granite Mountain are surrounded by this "beauty" - even so that sometimes you got to watch out that your legs do not touch the needles as you ride along the trails.

Prescott - The Old Wild West

My husband and I were mountain biking by the Granite Mountain in Williamson Valley and ran into this fully cladded cowboy: white shirt, vest, western hat... The horse looked so pleasant and happy. The cowboy was very friendly. It looked like they were on a special mission at a different time zone, yet all it was an ordinary day in Prescott Arizona, where the cowboys still rule!
