The wild, wild west

Hubby and I took a little drive to Prescott a while ago to basically get out of the HEAT.

Prescott (pronounced Preskit) is a charming town with a lot of history. I hope you enjoy the little tour.




Whiskey Row. Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday and the boys, were frequent visitors.
There are quite a few old saloons.
The local Masonic Temple
Another shot of Whiskey row.
A walkway in the downtown area. I just love the trees, all that shade!

Lots of traffic. Phoenicians trying to get out of the heat-hehe.
I
Love the benches and this gazebo in the front yard.

Maybe someday......

Courthouse Square. I think it is great that the center of town has its own gazebo.
This is the main hub. It is hard to believe that soon the grass will be covered with snow.
Time goes by wayyyy too fast.

What a neat looking place! That one shot looks just like the town in It's a Wonderful Life when Jimmy Stewart was running down the street. What great houses! I know you must have had lots of fun.
