  6. Whoa, so that’s where you went! I thought maybe so. Were you in Prescott? Didn’t get to make the mural scene in Phoenix? Beautiful shot!!!!!!

    • I had a brief trip into east Mesa to pick up some stuff, visit some old friends and head up to Prescott Valley. I wish I had more time to see some of the murals, but it wasn’t to be. Stopped briefly at the rim as I was heading out Sunday. I was surprised at how many folks were there this early!
