Cave Creek was established as a gold mining town and stopping point for the U.S. Cavalry in the mid 1870s. While most of the buildings built in the 1800s are probably gone, many that are standing have been there longer than anyone can remember and are reminiscent of what things looked like in the Wild West so long ago.
Gail, Carrie, and I had a blast walking thru all the shops in Cave Creek. Not sure the shop owners appreciated our sometimes over happiness! I played the part of a camera happy tourist. Lots of photos follow…
oh, there was lots of laughing.
got to say, that i am really enjoying life!
Gail, Carrie, & me
there is lots of cool metal work here
is that a mechanical pony i see?
why yes, yes it is! and there’s cowgirl gail!
i like these hours 😉
i like how the boxers match my shoes
gail and her fanny pack!
hahaha! “pasture bedtime”
are side pony tails back in style?
i like this one. the trail is a great place to be
and this is another good one … if people did more of this, the world would be much quieter
oh no Gail! Mr. Wayne looked very realistic. kind of freaky
cool artwork. his mane actually moved with the breeze
love that there are flowers and cactus here
thanks Carrie for pointing this cool staircase
regular fedex VS arizona fedex
the tumbleweed hotel!
here in arizona, jesus was a cowboy. and cowboys wear boots, not sandals
an angel in disguise
love the cactus
and the pretty flowers
there is so much i could say here, but i’m not
carrie’s laugh is fantastic!
i’ll take an espresso, but need to pass on the puppy. there’s no more room for anything or anybody (gail!) in the airstream
i think this should be my airstreaming lounge wear. comfortable and colorful
a variety of classy t-shirts
horse & java. perfect!
these are some scary looking birds
the artwork/metalwork at this place was fabulous. if i lived here, i might just have a gaudy yard filled with all kinds of cool stuff!
when you live on the road, in a tiny house, things like free wifi and a hot “normal” sized shower become luxuries. THANK YOU Gail. you really are making it difficult to leave
gail! you make me laugh
