Roy with the Low Rider

Actually it was just a day trip, with Roy’s brother and sister-in-law who are out here to celebrate their 40th anniversary, but we did get around. We first stopped  at Fort Verde State Historic Park which was a base for General Crook’s U. S. Army scouts and soldiers in the 1870s and 1880s. This was especially interesting because we had just rented “Geronimo”, whose surrender was ultimately engineered through the officers stationed at this fort . We ate lunch in Cottonwood and then rode up to Jerome, an old copper mining town perched on top of a mountain overlooking Sedona. Today Jerome is a thriving artists’ haven and it was fun to window-shop. There’s nothing like having visitors to get you out to explore where you live!

    Interesting about Geronimo because the last place that he was held was in Fort Pickens, there near my birth place of Pensacola, Fl. I loved going to the Fort as a kid and it is one of those things that usually only the tourist visit. And while we are on vacation, we are planning to visit another Fort, Fort Sumter at Charleston, SC. Do you hear the little girl in me jumping up and down, yipping?!
