Fort Verde State Historic Park
Fort Verde State Historic Park in the town of Camp Verde, Arizona is a small park that attempts to preserve parts of the Apache Wars era fort as it appeared in the 1880's. The park was established in 1970 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places a year later.
Settlers in the mid-19th century near the Verde River grew corn and other crops with the prospect o f getting good prices from nearby Prescott, Arizona.
The farmers requested military protection from the United States Army and, in 1865 although Arizona was still only a territory, the infantry arrived. They set up several posts over the next few years.

A little history of this park!
Fort Verde State Historic Park in the town of Camp Verde, Arizona is a small park that attempts to preserve parts of the Apache Wars-era fort as it appeared in the 1880s. The park was established in 1970 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places a year later.
Settlers in the mid-19th century near the Verde River grew corn and other crops with the prospect of getting good prices from nearby Prescott, which was the territorial capital, and from nearby miners. The rapid increase in population for the mining economy disrupted the hunting and gathering environments of the local native American tribes, the Dilzhe'e Apache and Yavapai. In turn, they raided the farmers' crops for food

Onewheel - Most Boring Town in America Contest Entry - Camp Verde, Arizona
Hey OneWheel! This is my answer to the Most Boring Town in America Contest!
Camp Verde, Arizona is home to about 9,000 residents and frankly I still don't know why. In all honesty, the lack of things to do is supplemented by the vast natural beauty and hiking trails that would be PERFECT to tear up on a OneWheel.

Mexican Hat Rock - Goosenecks State Park - Moki Dugway - Utah - LeAw in the USA //Ep.30
We are living the American dream driving the Historic Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica but we are doing some detours to visit some places we like.
In this 30th episode, we boondock at Mexican Hat Rock, then visit Goosenecks State Park and drive up the Moki Dugway. Enjoy the ride with us! ;)
The name Mexican Hat comes from a curiously sombrero-shaped rock outcropping on the northeast edge of town; the rock measures 60-foot (18 m) wide by 12-foot (3.7 m). The Hat has two rock climbing routes ascending it. It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.
Mexican Hat is a census-designated place (CDP) on the San Juan River on the northern edge of the Navajo Nations borders in south-central San Juan County, Utah, United States. The population was 31 at the 2010 census, a sharp decline from the previous two censuses.
The CDP is on U.S. Route 163 just 3 miles (5 km) south of the junction with State Route 261, and is just outside the northern boundary of both the Navajo Nation and Monument Valley. Goosenecks State Park is located just 9 miles (14 km) west.
Goosenecks State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Utah, overlooking a deep meander of the San Juan River. The park is located near the southern border of the state a short distance from Mexican Hat, Utah. Millions of years ago, the Monument Upwarp forced the river to carve incised meanders over 1,000 feet (300 m) deep as the surrounding landscape slowly rose in elevation. Eroded by water, wind, frost, and gravity, this is a classic location for observing incised meanders.
Goosenecks State Park is largely undeveloped. Primitive campsites with picnic tables are scattered back from the edge of the cliff, and vault toilets are available. Campers are advised to bring their own water, food, and other necessary gear.
There are no developed hiking trails in the park, but the Honaker Trail, a few miles to the northwest, provides access to the San Juan River.
(Moki Dugway) State Route 261 is a state highway located entirely within south-central San Juan County, Utah. It runs 34 miles (55 km) north, from the junction of U.S. Route 163 (3 miles (4.8 km) north of Mexican Hat), to the junction with State Route 95, just east of Natural Bridges National Monument.
The highway is part of the Utah section of the Trail of the Ancients, a National Scenic Byway. It includes steep switchbacks as it traverses the Moki Dugway.
From its southern terminus north of Mexican Hat, SR-261 commences in a westerly direction. After turning north, the route encounters the Moki Dugway, becoming an unpaved road. Following this, the road continues north and terminates at SR-95 west of Blanding.
The Moki Dugway was constructed in 1958 by Texas Zinc, a mining company, to transport uranium ore from the Happy Jack mine in Fry Canyon to the processing mill in Mexican Hat. The State Road Commission added SR-261 to the state highway system in 1957, following its present alignment from SR-47 (now US-163) north of Mexican Hat to SR-95.

PRESCOTT - A COOLER HISTORIC ARIZONA - Palace Saloon
My late Uncle Rolf had a dream to move from Phoenix to Prescott, Arizona. He liked to tell me about the cooler climate and how his children and family be more likely to move from Michigan to Prescott because its four season climate was somewhat similar to Michigan (without the humidity). Unfortunately that dream never came to fruitions as he passed away in the mean time. Given those circumstances Barbara and I just had to go to Prescott and check it out. Join as as we make our very first visit to Prescott, Arizona.
Prescott is a city in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the city is 39,843. The city is the county seat of Yavapai County. In 1864 Prescott was designated as the capital of the Arizona Territory, replacing the temporary capital at Fort Whipple. The Territorial Capital was moved to Tucson in 1867. Prescott again became the Territorial Capital in 1877, until Phoenix became the capital in 1889.
The towns of Prescott Valley, 7 miles (11 km) east; Chino Valley, 16 miles (26 km) north; Dewey-Humboldt, 13 miles (21 km) east, and Prescott, together comprise what is locally known as the Quad-City area. This also sometimes refers to central Yavapai County in general, which would include the towns of: Mayer, Paulden, Wilhoit, and Williamson Valley. Combined with these smaller communities the area had a population of 103,260 as of 2007. Prescott is the center of the Prescott Metropolitan Area, defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as all of Yavapai County.
The Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe reservation is located adjacent to and partially within the borders of Prescott.
Prescott is in the Granite Creek watershed and contains the convergence of Miller Creek and Granite Creek on its north side.
Prescott is 55 mi (89 km) west-northwest of the State of Arizona's geographic center.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 41.5 sq mi (107.5 km2), of which 40.7 sq mi (105.4 km2) is land and 0.81 sq mi (2.1 km2) is water.
Prescott is considered part of North Central Arizona. It is just south of the Granite Dells. The Granite Dells area, or often called ‘The Dells’, is known for its large boulder outcroppings of granite that have eroded into a spectacular appearance of bumpy rock features. Within 'The Dells' are Watson and Willow Lakes, which are two small, man-made reservoirs. Here a number of hiking trails connect to the Peavine Trail. The Peavine National Recreation Trail follows what was the former rail bed of the Santa Fe. This railroad traveled from Prescott to Phoenix through the Granite Dells. The “Peavine” got its name from the winding portion of this railroad that twists and curves, resembling the vine on which peas grow. The Peavine trail connects to the Iron King Trail, which was the route of the old Prescott Railroad through the Granite Dells. Natural lakes include Lynx, Granite Basin and Goldwater, all surrounding different areas of this rustic community. Goldwater Lake, by Goldwater Park, is 4 miles (6.4 km) from downtown Prescott, has 15 acres (6.1 ha) of water surface, and is a popular destination for park recreation and picnic facilities. Lynx Lake is another lake close to Prescott in tall ponderosa pines, and gets some 125,000 visitors every year. This 55-acre (22 ha) lake offers visitors recreational activities, boating, camping, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking and a small, seasonal restaurant with a view of the lake. Finally, there is the smallest of the natural lakes with 5 acres (2.0 ha) of surface water at Granite Basin Lake. None of these lakes permits swimming, however all are popular recreational destinations near Prescott.
Granite Creek flows generally north from the Bradshaw Mountains through the city, the Granite Dells, and the Little Chino Valley to the Verde River.
Prescott is in the Bradshaw Mountains of central Arizona, at an elevation of 5,400 feet (1,600 m). The city has a Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csa); however, unlike most other locations in this climate class, there is a pronounced summer wet season due to the North American Monsoon.
Average annual precipitation for 1981–2010 was 17.75 inches (451 mm), with spring and early summer the driest times of the year. Snowfall is typically light and snow cover usually melts away quickly; the 1981–2011 average seasonal total was 12.8 inches (33 cm).The largest portion of precipitation falls during the July–September monsoon season. Average daytime temperatures remain above 50 °F (10 °C) the entire year, but diurnal temperature variation is large throughout the year, averaging nearly 30 °F (17 °C) annually. On average, temperatures reach 90 °F (32 °C) on 36 days annually, though 100 °F (38 °C)
There was a severe drought from 1999 to 2009, seen from the lack of snowpack in the Bradshaw Mountains.
#Geronimo Birthplace Monument by the Gila Cliff Dwellings New Mexico
Geronimo Birthplace Monument by the Gila Cliff Dwellings New Mexico. The famous Apache warrior, who although was never a chief, is remembered perhaps as one of the most famous Indian’s of North American modern history. We have all yelled it before jumping into a lake from a rock or cliff, GERONIMOOOO! Now I was blessed enough to see his birth country, right there in the Gila National Park in New Mexico. #Geronimo #indian #Apache #newmexico
“Honoring an Apache Warrior
Memorial Project for Geronimo Helps Mark Public Lands Day
GILA WILDERNESS, N.M., Sept. 19 -- Almost 7,000 feet high in the middle of the country's first preserved wilderness, before the cement was mixed and the rocks and mortar were laid, this volunteer project started with an it'edjidile, a blessing, in the language of the Apache.
Harlyn Geronimo, a medicine man and the great-grandson of the Chiricahua Apache warrior Geronimo, prayed, raising fingertips smeared with the yellow pollen of the river cattail to a gray, overcast sky.” Read full source:
Here is where we stayed, which is near the cliff dwellings. It also has, across the street, an entire walled memorial to the Apache’s and a lot more about Geronimo.
Here is a bit more on this legend:
Geronimo (Mescalero-Chiricahua: Goyaałé ) the one who yawns; June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909) was a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Chiricahua Apache tribe. From 1850 to 1886 Geronimo joined with members of three other Chiricahua Apache bands—the Tchihende, the Tsokanende and the Nednhi—to carry out numerous raids as well as resistance to US and Mexican military campaigns in the northern Mexico states of Chihuahua and Sonora, and in the southwestern American territories of New Mexico and Arizona.
In his old age, Geronimo became a celebrity. He appeared at fairs, including the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, where he reportedly rode a ferris wheel and sold souvenirs and photographs of himself. However, he was not allowed to return to the land of his birth. He died at the Fort Sill hospital in 1909. He was still a prisoner of war. He is buried at the Fort Sill Indian Agency Cemetery surrounded by the graves of relatives and other Apache prisoners of war.”
The Gila wilderness is vast, still to this day. Stories of killer bears and mountain lions, not too mention the snakes and big game, still echo about around campfires. Not too long ago, a man was eaten alive by a mountain lion, right near where we camped while there!
By the way, here is the nice RV campground we hunkered down at. The hot springs down the street, by the river were great!

Fort Bowie National Historic Site
In the throes of a civil war where one nation wished to separate and follow its own destiny, the other wishing to maintain the union of a great nation; far to the west in what is now southeastern Arizona, a much smaller nation engaged the United States; as well as, Mexico just to keep its own sovereignty. Under the leadership of Cochise, the Chiricahua Apaches watched the encroachment of outsiders, the Butterfield Overland Mail Road, the stage station in Apache Pass and ranches sprouting up here and there across the arid landscape where water was premium; invading his peoples land. It finally come to a head after the Bascom Affair in February of 1861 which set the tone of hostilities and soon after; the Battle of Apache Pass fought July 15-16, 1862. Fort Bowie was then established July 28th, 1862 to protect the mail route, the nearby Apache Spring, and became the military nerve center on the campaign against the Apaches until Geronimo’s surrender September 4th, 1886. Afterwards, with the defeat of the Chiricahua Apaches Fort Bowie was no longer useful as a military base of operation closing October 17th, 1894 fading away into the silence of the surrounding hills and a bloody history lasting over two decades.
