We remain in a holding pattern on the house search, waiting for something interesting to come on the market. We've discovered that it's pretty easy to find a good sized lot and home, at a good price, with excellent RV parking out in Chino Valley, about 10 - 15 miles north of Prescott...we just don't know if we want to be in Chino.
Here's a look at some of what we've seen and done in the past week or so...
|We love having access to the granite fields of Watson Lake right from our RV park (Point of Rocks RV).|
We goof around on the boulders every single day!
|I'd seen plants that look like wild grapes on every hike near water |
and finally found proof that's what I was seeing!
|We've been listening to cicadas ever since we arrived in Prescott.|
They are usually high in the tops of the trees, I finally got a good look at one!
|They sure are noisy, but we've gotten used to the sound.|
|Morning warm up.|
|Another morning sun bather.|
|Reflections on Watson Lake.|
They are having a pretty serious algae bloom right now.
|We hiked some of the new Storm Trails on Hans' birthday.|
Here's a terrific resting spot on the Easter Island trail.
|Boulder Creek still had some monsoonal moisture in the rocky sections.|
|If this Black Tailed rattlesnake had not warned us of its presence we'd never have seen it in the brush off trail.|
|Once we'd located the snake we were able to spend several minutes admiring it from afar.|
|Hans had a tasty birthday dinner at the Barley Hound.|
The free birthday bread pudding was incredible!
|Fabulous fins on the Constellation trails.|
|Snake on a big old oak tree.|
|There are thousands of Acorn Woodpeckers in this area so I was surprised to see a Red-naped Sapsucker.|
|My dad stopped by for a few nights on his way home from his summer in Alaska!|
That's the latest from Prescott!
