Judy with Desert Little Bear


Arizona Territorial Wagon

Friends arrived today from Wickenburg, AZ. Judy and Jerry Cannon are staying in a historic hotel in Prescott, The Hassayampa Inn. They left their class A motorhome due to fuel considerations and the luxury of this hotel. We continue to rough it in the "fiver". We found out that "fiver" is the correct name for those in the know for a fifth wheel trailer. (grin)

After a nice visit to get caught up on happenings in the Phoenix area we went with them for lunch and a visit to the Sharlot Hall Museum and Indian Market in Prescott.

Lunch was at a place recommended by the hotel called The Office. It is on 128 North Cortez near Gurley Street in historic downtown Prescott. Judy C's GPS gave us directions from the hotel and we drove up and down Cortez Street several times looking for the Office until we realized we were on South Cortez Street not on North Cortez Street. Operator error. LOL

Sharlot Hall was a pioneer in the Arizona Territory. In fact her family homesteaded the property where we are staying, and named it Orchard Ranch. In 1909 she was appointed as Territorial Historian and developed a museum in the old log Govenor's Mansion . I have included a link to the website.Sharlot Hall Museum

While at the Indian Market we saw several native american weavers and artists making jewelery, paintings and rock art. Judy was drawn to the rock art booth and as she got closer she recognized the artist as a former co-worker from ASU. They spent a while catching up and we got a photo of them together.
