Monday – May 9, 2016
We spent a delightful six days exploring Prescott, Arizona, while camped at the White Spar Campground in the Prescott National Forest. The weather was pleasant upon our arrival on Tuesday and remained so through Thursday. Sunny skies with temperatures in the seventies prevailed through Thursday, then a cold front entered the area on Friday, plummeting the temperature into the low sixties, with partly sunny skies. Saturday and Sunday were equally chilly, with overcast skies and intermittent rain showers. It is time to move on to northern Arizona where sunny skies and temperatures in the middle seventies await our arrival.
This segment of our trip takes us to Holbrook, Arizona. This will be our home base while we spend a few days at the Crystal Forest Campground, exploring the Petrified Forest National Park.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
