In and near Prescott

We are enjoying the arrival of Fall in Prescott

and have had the pleasure of some very good company.  Mary came from Mountain View CA, Jen from Scotland, and Amy from Phoenix.  Later Mark and Janet came from New York.

We took them to favorite places and to places we hadn’t been before.  Like Watson Lake and the Granite Dells,

and Willow Lake,

and Lynx Lake.

All three lakes (and two others) are part of the City of Prescott.

Venturing about an hour from Prescott, we went to Arcosanti, an experimental micro-city pursuing radical reorganization by integrating architecture and ecology.  Today the city-building consists mainly of making bronze and ceramic bells to raise funds for future work.

Also about an hour away is Jerome, a sweet artsy town clinging to the side of Cleopatra Hill.

Not far from Jerome is Tuzigoot National Monument, a 110-room complex of stone masonry situated along a limestone and sandstone spine in the Verde Valley.  It was built by the Sinagua people between 1125 and 1400 CE.

Venturing just a bit farther away (about an hour and a half) is Sedona.

There’s so much more to explore and we look forward to sharing those adventures with future visitors.

  1. Ah, some of my favorite places. We’ll be spending next summer in Prescott Valley again. We’re seriously considering a home base somewhere around Prescott. Look forward to your future posts and learning more about the area.
