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 last Amazing Place column was about the Granite Mountain Hotshots and the Yarnell Memorial Park.

From the title and photo, you won’t be surprised that what I’m describing is “old” (historic) and you know a corral is where cattle are kept.

This article is different in a number of ways. Instead of one “amazing place,” there are many “amazing places” because this is a hike.
