Prescott AZ

 

Prescott is a pretty mountain town, set on the northeast edge of the Prescott National Forest in the Bradshaw Mountains.  It’s kind of where the granite rocks meet the pine forest, and at 5400 feet in elevation the days are beautiful and the nights are cool.  This is the backdrop of the local Walmart …

Prescott, founded in 1864, has a well maintained historical district which was very busy, but I manage this shot while stopped at the traffic light on my way back to the campground.

I take this photo while waiting for laundry to finish up.

Also crammed into the day is a trip to Willow Creek Dog Park.  A Prescott resident entered a contest held by the Purina dog food company and they won. This beautiful park is the result.  It’s dedicated to the Granite Mountain Hotshots who lost their lives in 2013 in the fire near Yarnell, and has a “fire station” theme.
