2013 trips travel blog

Today we drove to Prescott through some great scenery, hills and cliffs. Prescott was celebrating Rodeo days, this was the place of the first paying rodeo in the late 1800's. There were many vendors on the town square, we saw Whiskey Row with old buildings from the 1880's. We went to the Sharlott museum that included the territorial govenors mansion, misery cabin that is the oldest one in Arizona, the Fremont house constructed 11 years after the mansion that included wallpapered walls. The mansion was spacious but essentially a log cabin. We then drove through granite thumbs on the way back to Ash Fork. We drove though Williams, saw the train depot and the last remaining stop on route 66 - it was the last one to be bypassed by I40. On Sunday there will be a procession from Phoenix to Prescott of the 19 firemen lost in the Yarnell fire, people are being asked to line the highway all the way and the fairgrounds will be the site of a service for family members. We ran into traffic in Prescott today as the parade was over just as we arrived, glad we avoided the major issues tomorrow.
