Phoenix - Prescott - Jerome on the way to Sedona - Lessons in Elevation
Chase, Vicki Armstrong's 11 yr old grandson from Oklahoma, and I, left for a day trip to Sedona my last day in AZ, last Wednesday. We took the route NW out of the Valley to Wickenburg then up the Weaver Mountains and Tower Mountains finally cooling off in Prescott. Here we are at the Sacred Bean I think is is called where Chase is having his palms read by a woman named Bauer who is originally from Michigan. What a nice town, with a court house square and some infamous wild west labels like "Whiskey Row". Kinda like Northfield MN, and the Jesse James Days, the marketing value of history and living into it today.
We stopped on our way to Jerome and old mining town at this overlook. Chase took this photo of me.
Here is Chase at the same location.
When we got to the mountain side town of Jerome, Chase was attracted to the Magic Store. He mentioned he liked fog so the open proceeded to demonstrate a variety of tricks, flying monkeys and all.
Here is the front of the store.
And Deborah's car and Chase with the view to the valley floor from downtown Jerome :-)
