Prescott to Quartzsite

the Palace, Prescott, AZ Solon Borglum statue-Captain William O'Neill(Jan)Tuesday and Wednesday night found us staying at the Krazy K RV Park in Camp Verde, Arizona. It’s a nice place and it’s great to have all of the laundry done again. When we posted a note on Face Book asking if anyone else was in the area, we got a response back from Gregg and Sally Schindel inviting us to come over to Prescott and park in their driveway! We didn’t want to take our MH with it’s compromised exhaust system over the mountains but we did drive our pick-up over and had a delightful visit and dinner with them on Wednesday. In the afternoon we drove to downtown Prescott to enjoyed walking around the town square with it’s beautiful courthouse in the middle and stores & shops on the streets Jan & Sally clowning w/a witch in Prescottsurrounding it. We enjoyed the many historical buildings, including The Palace on Whiskey Row pictured above, the Borglum bronze statue on the courthouse lawn, pictured at right, and several colorful murals. Prescott was named the territorial capital of Arizona in 1864 by President Lincoln. Prescott is very actively preserving it’s history and historical buildings. Also as a city they are active and interested in the Arts. We enjoyed several ladies dressed in 1900’s garb strolling down the street headed for tea at a local shop. Sally and I couldn’t resist having our picture taken with one of the gals who was all ready for Halloween. Wonderful town, great friends, very fun and relaxing visit.

We were on our way again Thursday morning headed south and then west; our destination, Quartzsite. Our exhaust system parts will be in on Monday and this is a perfect place to get projects done. We’ll also soak in some sunshine, 80-90 degree temperatures, cool evenings and some of the prettiest sunsets you’ve ever seen. BLM desert land north of Plomosa Road is once more our home.
