Sunset Sedona hike; sunny Chino Valley views


Today’s is a dual post: the evening hike I had yesterday with my friend Denise around Bell Rock in Sedona, and then today’s prairie beauty in Chino Valley.

Last night, Denise kindly ferried me from Sedona to her place here in Chino Valley, just north of Prescott. (Transit wasn’t an option, and the distance plus elevation made it not workable for me to bicycle.)

On the way, we passed through the incredibly quirky and charming mountain-village ghost town of Jerome, Arizona, another National Historic Landmark Town. Sadly, we passed through in the dark, so I didn’t take any pics, but I got a feel for the place since many bars and galleries seemed to be open, so the town had a cozy yet vibrant feel. If you’re ever in northern Arizona, stop by and check it out!

Today was a lazy day, hanging out with the cat and strolling over to the prairie on the edge of the neighborhood. I found the prospect of the vast expanse too overwhelming to walk through, so I stuck to a small trail along the fence, which also introduced me to a friendly neighbor horse. (Sorry, no pic of the horse nor the cat.)

Tomorrow I’ll be meeting up with a few friends in the Prescott area, before heading south toward Phoenix. I’ve never been to Prescott, or any surrounding area until today, so I’m looking forward to that, as well as connecting with friends I haven’t seen in years.
