Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Bagdad Arizona - "The best copper town anywhere"

After lunch at Skull Valley Café Tuesday, Ron and I went for a ride to Bagdad, not in Iraq.

Along Arizona Highway 96 between Kirkland and Hillside

Wow, a lupine in the dessert!? They are native to Canada's east coast too - a very different climate from Arizona.

I like that Monument. It has quite the different style and form to it.It would be nice to see more creative art in the world. Hopefully, communities will see the importance of expressing themselves on new levels.

I didn't know there was a Bagdad AZ. I agree with Natural Moments, that copper sculpture is unusual and expressive. I hope the artwork is secured somehow as copper plumbing and sculptures are being ripped off here. I like the wildflowers you found.

A lovely story on how it got its name Gaelyn. I have always been fascinated with the contasts of Arizona and never get tired of seeing pics of my favorite state.

The explanation of the town's name is funny.
I always love finding wildflowers in the desert. They're so unexpected, and that makes them even more of a delight.
Re: cowboy cave, it doesn't extend more than a hundred feet or so into the mountain, and most of it gets at least some natural light. That made it handy for a dwelling, but not a place sought after by spelunkers!

One of my best friends was born and raised in Bagdad, AZ! We worked together at Ft. Whipple VA Center in Prescott. I love the spring blooms in the desert - it's my favorite time of year there. I love the story of how Bagdad got its name and that statue is really cool too.

You are making me aware of places in AZ I have never heard of! That's a silly joke by the way: "Bag Dad!"

Discovered your blog from Natural Moments at walking in stillness. The energy that resonates from Arizona is intense and renewing. Bagdad story encourages human beings to step outside comfort zones and look deeper, beneath the rock of their own psyche.

I so enjoyed those shots of the wide open sky; and what a brewing storm? I hope it had rain in it. Are your wildflowers out already?
