Time for another ride with our new biker friends Doug and Jan. We volunteered to show them where the Costco was located in Prescott Valley—a tough job but we were up to it.
We followed our usual route, taking NV 89 from Congress up “Yarnell Hill”
through the valley and up the other mountain
past the beautiful folded hills.
As we neared Prescott we saw this fire off to the east, but couldn’t smell any smoke in town.
First building you see as you enter the city.
89 is called Montezuma St. in Prescott. Between Goodwin St. and Gurley St. it is known as Whiskey Row. On one side is the courthouse and courthouse plaza. While Duane took care of an errand in the courthouse, Jan, Doug and I wandered around enjoying the crisp air and fall colors and learning our Prescott history.
This u-shaped walkway gives a year by year history of major events.
Across from the courthouse is the row of saloons that give Whiskey Row its name.
This is an interesting place (see Reaquainting blog).
Clever (if kind of gory) advertising. This was situated between
this shop and
After our stroll we rode on north east to Prescott Valley where Doug and Jan found out where the Costco is located. We stopped for lunch at Rod Robin, then, friends in tow, headed out of town on Iron Springs Road.
We enjoyed our ride home as much as the ride up the mountains.
More fun tomorrow.
