Hiking an Arizona desert after a rainstorm…part two.

Once we headed back from walking Waterfall Trail at the White Tank Mountains, we decided to drive around the park, which is huge. The rain clouds were all around the mountains. It reminded my husband of Ansel Adams photos from the 80’s. There were a couple photographers out that morning taking photos. Every now and…

Repost-On a country road again

Finally made it up north. The only free day we had was Easter, so our Easter morning this year was a beautiful country road trip through Arizona and the wildflowers were out in full force. The snow storms and rain everyone had over the Winter months ended up making our little part of the world…

Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

A day in Prescott Arizona…part two.

  Our road trip was coming to an end so before it got too late and that warm sun left (remember we are from Phoenix) we headed to our favorite place for a take out lunch…to Lynx Lake. When my husband and I first started dating, he was 19 and I had just turned 18,…

An Arizona Ghost

     Whether you believe in ghost or not, there are a lot of old ghost towns out here in the west and some of those old western towns actually come with a ghost or two…according to some that is and believe it or not my son and daughter had their very own ghost experience in…

Apple picking in the country

Wow, we are crawling with apples. Well it is that time of year, when apples are everywhere, so I shouldn’t be so shocked, but it is a little overwhelming. Our neighbors here in the city just went on a road trip and when they got back from visiting family in Idaho they brought back a…

Road trip-Morning Glories, Sunflowers and Pumpkins.

Wow. Our little red house is popping with colors right now, growing all along our barb wire fence is a beautiful vine with purple flowers. Our neighbor Doug has been helping us out when we are away mowing our lawn and he left this beautiful plant. And to think we were always weed whipping all…

Arizona critters…and 1 mogollon monster

  Whenever we are out exploring, having a picnic, or driving down those back roads surrounded by wilderness, we run into wildlife now and then. Sometimes if we are lucky, we have our cameras ready. Even with cameras on hand, we still end up getting a lot of butt shots of animals walking away… but…

Church Sale Treasures

  You get up with the sun here when the temps start rising, but that is only during the months when the temps cool down at night, otherwise you try to get through it the best you can…drinking lots of water of course. The only thing that seems to survive are cactus during this time…

Back to the Past…to 1929

Traveling down that dirt road that leads to Young Arizona makes me feel like we are in some sort of time machine at times. The cattle roaming through the tall pine trees, the fresh smell of trees and just the fact that everything is so quiet up there. There is such a difference from the…
