Standin’ on the Corner Park Festival • Sept. 24-25
“Take It Easy” became The Eagles first hit single in the 1970s, and it put Winslow on the map. Visitors come from far and wide to relive the famous line: “I’m standin’ on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see. It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford, slowin’ down to take a look at me.” The corner - Historic Route 66 (Second Street) and Kinsley Avenue - features an incredible mural by John Pugh and life-size bronze sculpture by Ron Adamson depicting the story behind the song. Bring your camera and take YOUR photo on the corner! Come anytime…Winslow has plenty of diversions to make for a great weekend getaway or even longer. Jet-skiing, train-spotting, searching out Route 66 memorabilia, touring the historic La Posada Hotel, and a chance to reflect upon the largest pieces of wreckage from the World Trade Center are just a few. food, arts & crafts and many other vendors, a kids’ play area, Beer Garden, and afternoon Talent Show. Bring the whole family for a great day out! Don’t miss the evening concert, which features “Mogollon”, Arizona’s best Country Rock band. Other bands throughout the weekend include Mantis, Hotfoot, Tommy Dukes, Miss Tayva, Northern Latino Express, Sounds of Faith and many more. Festivities continue on Saturday and include an auction at 11:30 am with lots of great items including a signed guitar by Hotel California and another one signed by Mogollon. “Hotel California, A Salute to the Eagles” headlines the Saturday night concert. Get ready to rock and roll! This will be a party to remember! Fire Truck Tug…and other Fun Things to Do Taking place on Saturday the 25th adjacent to the Corner Park Festival is the Annual Winslow Fire Truck Tug. Teams tug on a rope to pull a real fire truck 10 feet. There will be food vendors and lots of other activities, all to benefit Special Olympic kids. The High Desert Piecemakers Quilt Guild Show also takes place this weekend and next, while on October 1-2, the “Standin’ On the Corner” Just Cruisin’ Car Show presents classic cars from around the nation, along with a Sock Hop and Poker Run.

“take it easy” in Winslow
of neon, classic cars and so on. Be sure to visit La Posada Hotel, last of the great Fred Harvey Hotels built by the Santa Fe Railroad in the 1930s. Once a favorite hangout of Hollywood stars, it offers fine dining and self-guided tours through the delightful gardens and unique architecture. Hidden Treasures The high desert flaunts big blue skies - and very little rain. However, Winslow boasts a hidden gem: McHood Park Clear Creek Reservoir. Formed by the waters of a cool stream that flows through Clear Creek Canyon, the lake is perfect for swimming and skiing. RV and camping areas, picnic tables shaded by ramadas, BBQ grills and more all make this a great place to linger. Another unexpected and poignant landmark is Winslow’s Remembrance Garden on east 3rd Street, dedicated to the tragic events of 9/11. Displaying the largest pieces of wreckage from the World Trade Center of any community in the nation, the garden is planted in red, white and blue flowers and flies a flag that once graced the Pentagon in Washington, DC. Come Party with Us!

The Best Preserved Meteorite Impact Site on Earth!
Meteor Crater is located in Northern Arizona on Interstate 40, 35 miles east of Flagstaff. Each year thousands of visitors from all over our world visit this natural landmark and look with wonder at what can happen when the Earth is struck by an asteroid. Meteor Crater (also known as “The Barringer Meteorite Crater”) is proven to be the best preserved meteorite impact site on earth! Apollo Astronauts once trained here due to the terrain resembling the Earth’s Moon and other Planets. The Interactive Discovery Center located within the Visitor Center is the most extensive museum of its type. Visitors will relive the intensity of this impact when 50,000 years ago a fiery giant meteor mass weighing several hundred thousand tons hurtled through space and impacted the earth. Apollo space test capsule, American Astronaut Wall of Fame, and many large meteorite specimens are among the wide range of fascinating exhibits. The Meteor Crater Theater presents an informative and entertaining 10-minute movie “Collisions and Impacts”, which shows twice each hour in the state-of-theart, 80-seat wide screen theater.

Native American Art on Scenic Hwy 89A
While you are in Northern Arizona, you surely will want to buy some authentic Native American Arts & Crafts. For one of the best - and most reasonable - places to shop, head to the Oak Creek Vista Overlook. It’s located 14 miles south of Flagstaff on Hwy. 89A, the scenic route from Flagstaff to Sedona - and vice versa. This is one of the most beautiful drives in America, so even if the Overlook were not there, this would still be a trip to recommend. When you see the sign “Scenic Viewpoint,” just pull off there, because that’s the Overlook. There is plenty of free parking. Though the overlook is on Forest Service land, Native Americans for Community Action (NACA) has made an arrangement to lease a portion of the land, which it in turn allocates to Native American vendors. At the present time, there are spaces occupied by sellers of handmade jewelry, pottery, baskets, rugs, etc. Native Americans for Community Action is a non-profit organization devoted to funding needed programs for Native Americans. Mrs. Dorothy Gishie, Program
928-526-2968, ext. 26

Don’t Miss the Overlook!

Outdoor observation areas allow you to view the crater from inside the rim. Although Meteor Crater is nearly a mile wide and 550 feet deep, the observation telescopes allow you a close up look at points of interest in the crater. Daily-guided rim tours for those with proper hiking shoes leave hourly, weather permitting. Also located within the visitor center is a Gift & Rock Shop and Subway sandwich shop. Our elevators and lifts provide access for everyone. Located only five miles from the Crater is the Meteor Crater RV Park with 71 beautifully landscaped pull through spaces. It includes a rec. room, private individual restroom and shower facilities, laundry, playground, country store and Mobil gas station. The “Hole Enchilada” located within the country store provides a delicious Mexican food menu. Meteor Crater RV Park is centrally located to many of Northern Arizona’s most popular tourist attractions. Meteor Crater Visitor Center and RV Park are open year round.

Coordinator, said that all of the wares sold at the Overlook have to be handmade/ handcrafted by Native Americans. Best of all, the prices are more reasonable than you will see elsewhere - because the middleman has been eliminated. You are either buying from the artist or someone very close to him or her. Most of the Native Americans selling there are Navajos, but there is also a scattering of other tribes showing their art. Mrs. Gishie said NACA would like to have all of the tribes of Northern Arizona represented.

Arizona’s State Parks...
Make Magical Memories
Many of Arizona’s 23 State Parks preserve those fascinating bits of history or provide chances to hike, splash and fish. But some special places also protect magical scenery and vital wildlife habitat. This summer take the time to visit these parks beloved by people, javalina, trout, and elk. In Flagstaff stop at Riordan Mansion State Historic Park tucked away off the main drag. This “arts and crafts” bungalow-style home is a pocket park with a hundred-yearold log mansion. Here you will experience the western flavor and perspective of historic family life. At Slide Rock State Park just rock hop and probably rock slip into the famous Oak Creek chute water slide. After catching your breath, go to Red Rock State Park, a showcase for nature’s unspoiled wilderness. The hiking trails lead to views of the majesty that is Cathedral Rock and the splendor of Sedona as the butter-soft sun cascades across the red rocks. Hikes make this park mandatory for birdwatchers who download their bird list and then creep

Cochise County Beckons
Keeping Cool in Southern Arizona
As you drive an hour or so south of Tucson, climbing in elevation, the temperatures start to fall. Whether you are hiking in the mountains or enjoying a coffee in mile high Bisbee, you’ll find Cochise County is many degrees cooler than metro Tucson. If you’re looking to explore old west history, natural settings and wonders, museums and art galleries, romantic getaways or some of the best birding in the entire country, Cochise County can meet all your needs - and keep you cool too! Living western history is practically everywhere, but Tombstone - the world famous “Town Too Tough to Die” - epitomizes the Old West of gunfights, gambling, and good times. Willcox is the hometown of the late singing cowboy, Rex Allen. Sierra Vista’s history includes an original outpost, Ft. Huachuca, home of the “Buffalo Soldier.” Bisbee was at one time the largest city between Denver and San Francisco and is now an engaging artist’s colony. Douglas is an international town that captures the flavor of both Mexico and the U.S. Natural attractions include the world

softly through the park. Wildflower lovers and moonlight hike seekers fill the hikes though, so call early. The Verde Valley offers another slice of military history with Fort Verde State Park. Dead Horse Ranch State Park protects unspoiled river wilderness and is one of Arizona’s most important birding areas. Lagoons lure the fishers while tubers prefer the lazy river. In September the park hosts “Verde River Days,” a weekend with all the bells and whistles of a theme park, in a natural setting. And for those heading south, a must see is Kartchner Caverns where you can stand in the moist, limestone lungs of the cave that breathe out cool air from Arizona’s depths into the dry Chihuahuan desert. Take your family to see the dreamscape improvisations of stone - totems, helictites, turnip shields, columns of calcite that festoon and gleam in the humidity of one of America’s top caves. Visit State Parks and revel in the glory that is... Arizona.

famous Kartchner Caverns, the towering Chiricahua National Monument, and the renowned birding canyons of the Huachuca Mountains. Ramsey Canyon, for example, is recognized for 14 species of hummingbirdsand summer is the time for spectators. The canyons are cool, and hundreds of feathered and reptile friends frolic along the trails. You’ll find a warm welcome in Cochise County. Easy smiles and friendly waves greet visitors in restaurants, stores and shops. Take a break from the heat and head south and “up” to the many “cool” destinations in Cochise County.

Besh-Ba-Gowah Archaeological Park Top Bass Tournament in Payson
Exploring Salado Culture in Globe Families Meet Pro Anglers and Reel in a Ton of Fun

The earliest residents of the Globe area were the Hohokam, who established pit house villages in the Tonto Basin around A.D. 900. After several hundred years, this culture was replaced by that of another group known as the Salado Indians. In the 1200’s they built several pueblos along the banks of Pinal Creek. Shortly after 1400 the pueblos were abandoned and the civilization of the Salado people mysteriously disappeared. The area remained uninhabited until the Apache people made it their homeland sometime after A.D. 1600. The name Besh-Ba-Gowah comes from the Apache language and translates to English as “place of metal.” At Besh-Ba-Gowah Archaeological Park on the outskirts of present day Globe you can walk within the restored rooms of one such Salado pueblo. The pueblo was built in stories. Many of the ground floor rooms were used for storage as upper levels were added for living areas. Climb the re-created ladder and enter a typical second story room in the same way as the ancient Salado did. You will find pottery and tools typical of the times in

The World’s Oldest Continuous Rodeo Turns 126!
Payson, Arizona is where rodeo began. Known since its inception in 1884 as “August Doin’s”, the Annual World’s Oldest Continuous Rodeo is a world famous event that will celebrate its 126th consecutive year in 2010 on August 20 - 22. Rodeo performances start at 7:00 PM Friday and Saturday night and at 1:00 PM Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Sunday is Family Day. Gates open 2 hours prior to the performances. Also part of this year’s event is a rodeo dance on both Friday and Saturday night at the historic Oxbow Saloon on Main Street where music featuring Rendezvous inside plus another band outside begins at 9:00 PM. Doors open at 5:00 PM. The first rodeos in Payson were held to provide local ranchers and cowhands a chance to get together and compare their roping skills and cow ponies during the annual “down time” before the big fall roundup. There were only a couple of events in those early rodeos, but it was not long before cowboys from all over the state were showing up to compete in new events like bronc busting, bull riding, and steer roping. Early Payson rodeos weren’t held in

Like many places in the Southwest, a trip to Zuni often means more than meets the eye. And if one comes with an open attitude, wonderful things seem to happen. Arriving along NM Highway 53, a first impression might be of a scrappy, dusty community with little to offer. But step into any of the several trading posts to be immersed in a virtual wealth of color, materials, and art forms. Zuni is a village of artists after all! Ask a few questions about what is being depicted or about the materials used to get a glimpse into the alternate reality of Zuni culture and worldview. Or, view one of the occasional social dances performed at local arts markets or at regional sites to see some of this other world enacted - a

full color portrayal of stories, themes, or just the joy of another way of being. Zuni artists create from their own wealth of cultural knowledge and experience - and with a bit of patience and understanding, some of this can be revealed to the quiet inquirer. Though much insight can be gleaned from almost any culturally crafted artwork, be also respectful of the limits of what an Outsider can reasonably expect to learn. Nonetheless, an encounter with another culture or arts as vibrant as found at Zuni Pueblo can provide a lifetime of experiences to draw upon. Call us to begin your trip into an alternate reality.

Taos, New Mexico is cool in so many ways. Average summer temps - 82˚ days, 51˚ nights!
You don’t need a map to find sacred places in Taos. They’re everywhere...on well-traveled roads to the historic Taos Pueblo, along a winding alley to a gallery or workshop, with the sounds of the Rio Grande as it rushes down the canyon. Taos is the result of centuries of history and a fusion of diverse cultures that create a unique town full of unforgettable places and memories. For a full listing of summer events visit www.TaosSacredPlaces.com.
