Arrived home Sunday evening. Thought about spending the night in Prescott, but found the city even more crowded than the last time we visited. It seems to have all the chain restaurants any other city might have. With a lot of their own, Downtown is still unique with all of its charm, plenty of tourists on a Sunday afternoon. However once you put a Costco big box in, you know the city has grown. When we first visited it was still a small town with their original rodeo Fairgrounds, the same Rodeo filmed in Steve Mcqueen’s 1972 “Junior Bonner”. There is a now a new Fairgrounds at what is now the edge of town (Maybe not for long) on the way to Sedona. Anyway it used to be a town we wanted to live in, not any more. So it was a quick lunch and back on the road to home.
Thoughts and some missed posts from Vacation
On the way back from our dinner train through the Royal Gorge Dinner Train Ride and the Florence Rose B & B, we stopped at my Grandfathers Property in Westcliff. It was nice to see it again nothing had changed much since the last time we were there, except for Marker.
I spent some time in Westcliff with my Grandfather one high school summer, it was a great time and I got a love for Colorado’s beauty. Ive been up to his land since with my Dad and spent a night in the bus, swapping stories about him, and drinking Jack Daniels. I don’t remember all of it, but i’m sure I had a good time.
I could have chose photos of his land, but I still find his machinery interesting. Nothing but reverence was intended.
I Know he doesn’t like his photo taken, But I think he looks pretty cool in this shot.
