As usual in Natalie’s Coffee Share, I try to squeeze more photo challenges into a post that is logistically possible. By logistically I mean more than you’d ever want to look at or read about in one sitting. Or maybe ever.
This week was most exciting because our friend, Janet from This That and The Other Thing drove to Prescott and spent the better parts of two days in Prescott with Vince and me. After taking pictures all over Prescott, I lured her to spend Tuesday night so we could attend an outdoor concert in Courtyard Square. Guess what happened as we got ready to go?
The temperatures dropped 20 degrees. The rain began in earnest. The concert lost its appeal. Vince suggested a different plan for the evening. What if we went to Auggies for lobster nachos appetizers and then went downtown to Founding Fathers (FF)? FF is a group of businesses under one roof where people hang out, and play games, get haircuts, work out in the gym, or try different kinds of beer and wine and pay by the ounce. This turned out to be the winning idea.
Photos Worth Sharing from June
We started out early on Wednesday on Peavine Trail, a former railway between Prescott and Phoenix that runs beside the Riparian Preserve, Granite Dells, and Watson Lake once you pass the dump and the fire practice location.
Interestingly these desert turtles have come out from their burrows due to the monsoons. In Phoenix, I heard on the news that they are hoping to adopt some of them. Better let your kids or grandkids adopt them – they live for 80 years. I call this turtle “he” because I have no idea of his gender.

Then we headed downtown and took pictures of buildings – specifically doors and windows.
More Thursday Doors
We parked and started to walk along this iconic Prescott street with an interesting assortment of older and new homes built from the 1880s to the 1990s.
