(*She Who Must Be Obeyed/Judy and the Beautiful Rich Daughter/Gayle)
As I told them when I returned, everywhere I went today it had rained yet I got only a light sprinkle on my windshield.
But here is why the Verde Valley is especially green this time of year.
A view from below of the Black Hills of Arizona, which house Mingus and Woodchute Mountains.
And a familiar sight from our years living in Arizona and particularly during the two years or so that we lived in Clarkdale: the road to Jerome.
That road which continues onward and upward over the Mingus Summit Rest Area and down the southwest side back to Prescott Valley is one of my favorite drives . . switchbacks, gawking slow-driving tourists and all.
