Prescott Trip Part 1

Last weekend, Josh and I traveled to Prescott (pronounced Pres-kit), Arizona for the Whiskey Off-Road race. It’s a famously hot endurance event, and Josh signed up for the 50-miler. With a group of his teammates, we rented a house through VRBO and it was awesome. I would definitely stay there again, even though it was definitely not “walking distance” to town and the road to the house was very scary and perilous.

We made some roadside stops: the first was to see a Bolo Tie Museum in Wickenburg, but the museum had no bolo ties.

But Josh made a friend, and Wickenburg was delightful anyway.IMG_8170

There were some majorly authentic Westerners in the Palace. Apparently it’s a hub for old west re-enactors? IMG_8241 IMG_8242 IMG_8244 IMG_8245 IMG_8246 IMG_8247 IMG_8249 IMG_8252 IMG_8253 IMG_8254 IMG_8255 IMG_8256 IMG_8257 IMG_8259 IMG_8261 IMG_8262 IMG_8264 IMG_8270 IMG_8271 IMG_8272 IMG_8276 IMG_8278 IMG_8279 IMG_8280 IMG_8282

I was obsessed with the beautiful Victorian homes.IMG_8286 IMG_8289 IMG_8290 IMG_8291 IMG_8294
