Today, we’ll stay close to home, in the City of Prescott. It’s not an Amazing Place, but an Amazing Road — the Old Bullwhacker Hill Road.
My thanks to all of you who answered the survey this past week. I’ll give you the results, but first I encourage those of you who didn’t answer to send an email telling me that you usually read my column.
After looking today’s photo, you may be saying to yourself “that looks familiar, why is it being published again?” Well, it was intended to catch your eye and give me a chance to talk about the survey that I mentioned at the end of my last article – more on the photo below.
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).
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’re back in the Ash Fork area again for today’s article about the Johnson Tunnel.
Sinkholes can be quite surprising! Dante’s Descent is the most amazing one I know of in Arizona.
Waterfalls are rare around the Prescott area.
I spent the previous weekend at Montezuma Well National Monument at an event organized by VOAZ (Volunteers for Outdoor Arizona).
Today we’re going to visit an interesting old building that dates back over a century – the Algonquin Mine.
Today’s article is not about an Amazing Place, but an amazing insect. I have also included an update on the giant juniper – my article from a fortnight ago.
My last Amazing Place column was about the Granite Mountain Hotshots and the Yarnell Memorial Park.
Today’s Amazing Place is one almost all of you know about, but few have visited. The Yarnell Memorial Park honors the Prescott Granite Mountains Hotshots — where 19 brave men perished almost five years ago, on June 30, 2013.
This article is different in a number of ways. Instead of one “amazing place,” there are many “amazing places” because this is a hike.
