28-29 MAR: PRESCOTT AZ

I had a great visit with my aunt and uncle in Prescott AZ.  We made a day trip to an area overlooking the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness – incredible view – but a bit hazy and late in the morning for good light.  This is a great location to return to for early morning light, but probably requires camping overnight to be on site early.  The highlight was the ruins of a Native American cliff dwelling.  The builders of this dwelling took great advantage of existing geology, security, and an incredible view.

My uncle and I later had a drink at the Palace on Prescott’s historic Whiskey Row…complete with swinging doors and long wooden bar.  I’m fairly certain that Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday once sat on my barstool while Gold Tooth Gert and Slantin’ Annie worked the bar.  What a place!
