5/13/2016 . I better start adding the dates – the days are really running together. Leaving Prescott we could see a snow covered Mt in the distance. It was the San Francisco Mt in Flagstaff- over 50 miles away! Clear, in mid- 70’s as we climbed about 1500ft into pines and high desert- tough ascent as usual but great curves and views back. We topped out at the 7023 ft summit of Mingus Mt just before a cooling descent into Jerome. A booming copper mining town in the early 1900s and reminded me of Virginia City near Reno. Terrific art studios and views of the red rock Sedona area in the distance. Meet a retired lawyer and his daughter riding their Harley from Newport Beach- another great way way to get to know your daughter Here’s a few pics . Got to run we’re off to Flagstaff today.
