Nigel Reynolds is a Courier columnist writing about Amazing Places.
Two weeks ago, we went to Sycamore Canyon and enjoyed an amazing Indian ruin.
All of you know Oak Creek and its picturesque canyon north of Sedona, but how many of you know about another creek some miles to the west of Oak Creek?
This week we are going to enjoy some ancient Indian ruins and petroglyphs. Remember, you can visit both the Brooklyn Mine and today’s places in a single trip, so for driving directions contact me through the Courier’s senior editor, Tim Wiederaenders (use Subject: Brooklyn Rim).
At the beginning of this month, I took you on a visit to Richinbar, a mining ghost town.
This week we’ll stay within city limits with a hike to the Storm Ranch area of the Granite Dells.
An area I haven’t covered so far is the Agua Fria National Monument (NM) – “agua fria” is Spanish for “cold water.”
We are going today back up north to Red Mountain, an interesting volcano just off U.S. 180.
This article, and my next one on Red Mountain, are not close to Prescott.
Today we will visit Mingus Mountain, part of the Black Hills.
This week we’re staying close to Prescott, ready to visit some petroglyphs along Salida Gulch.
