Took Another Walk Into The Past

This time capsule is but a few minutes from downtown Prescott...


Took a little hike to the Lynx Creek Ruin today. 

Take 301. Trail 305 leads you on a long walk back to the highway.

You have to squint and use your imagination a little, but this was once a 15 room pueblo from 1150-1300 CE. 


One is tempted to ask "Why there?" until you see the views...

San Francisco Peaks in the distance.


What Abject Cruelty!

Who puts a used book section in the museum gift shop?!!


Visited the Smoki Museum in Prescott this afternoon.  In many ways the Smoki People - white people performing in red face - were to Native America what the Rosicrucians are to ancient Egypt.  Still, they have a fine little museum featuring extensive displays of weaving, pottery, and lithics.  Best of all, on several shelves in the gift shop there are used books at garage sale prices.  The five I chose cost me all of $17.50.
