While my sister-in-law was visiting, we had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy some great music this summer and do some sightseeing around my new home state of Arizona. Prescott and the Quad-Cities area has something going on every weekend and in between, it seems, so one never need get bored.
Every Saturday the Granite Creek Vineyard in Chino Valley features live music. My first visit there was very enjoyable, listening to the Denise Allen Band, and then witnessing a fabulous up-close show by a male peacock, struttin’ his stuff. A couple of weeks later, a return trip was rewarded with a hen and chicks sighting.
Another weekend I participated in a Cowboy Gathering in Dewey Humboldt. I had the opportunity to talk about my books and to meet other authors, cowboy poets and musicians.
Then there was the Bluegrass Festival on the Courthouse Plaza in Prescott–what a toe-tappin’, boot-stompin good time!
And, just before my sister-in-law returned to Spokane WA, we went to the Elevate! Christian Concert in Prescott Valley, where we heard Jars of Clay and Third Day in concert.
Of course we had to visit the Grand Canyon …
And the summer isn’t over yet!
