Visiting Prescott Courthouse Square Willy style!
This is actually “Act II” from last week’s post. The same day Willy had lunch at Barley Hound he played tourist at the Historic Prescott Courthouse Square. It really was a magnificent day. This is my hometown – born and raised, but believe it or not, I can count on one hand the number of times I have actually spent time on the square.
We enjoyed the historical statues of Prescott history. Prescott was the Territorial capitol of Arizona before we became a state. Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders originated here in Prescott.
We have a rich military history with the Calvary at Fort Whipple, but Prescott also has a rich cowboy and ranching heritage as well. We really liked this statue of a Cowboy at rest.
My son, Tyler, came with us. Tyler is a veteran. This monument honoring the local veterans who gave their lives serving our country was especially meaningful.
In typical Willy style, he enjoyed every moment, even the moments we took a break to rest a few minutes.
Willy enjoyed seeing all the sights, smelling all the different smells and meeting the different dogs who were also enjoying a stroll on the square. Willy enjoyed making new human friends as well.
We ended the day relaxing on the lush grass, soaking up the summer warmth and clean mile high air.
