Here's a pic from my recent trip from Phoenix to Flagstaff, to Jerome, Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and onto Las Vegas via Historic Route 66.





This is between Jerome and Prescott, amazing views.



Here's a bridge near Sedona in the Red Rock National (?) park.



Jerome, AZ. Do yourself a favor and go.



The 4 horsemen at the gate of Hell.



My brother and I on 66:



We had a blast, my brother is a photographer and he took these. I'm doing good just to point the camera the right direction. He can't carve a pumpkin for sh!t though, so I have one thing on him...

In the pics you'll see me (beard), the old man is my old man, the dude with the short hair sans beard is my buddy Jacob, and the dude with the longer wavy hair is my younger brother.

Neat pics, Sweat.

But where are the pumpkin pics, so we can validate your assertion about carving prowess?

:-D

You asked for it:

Mine (freehand I might add!):



His (used a stencil from a book, and F'd up the eyes):




Ok, so maybe his ain't so bad and mine ain't so great...he sure had a hard time doing it though. I need something to hold on to!

(Edit:smaller pics)

Oh yes, you are most Da Vinci like, in comparison to his Neanderthal, scratchings-on-a-cave-wall!

Thanks for those pics, as well!

Nice pics there Sweatmachine.I've been all through those areas in a car or truck but never on my bike.Prescott was nearly burnt up in a big fire a few years ago .The road to the west from there is spectacular ;last time through there was burnt trees everywhere,pretty sad.
Looks like you had a nice trip.

it's a place designed by an architect named paoli soleri. he worked with frank lloyd wright and had some of the same design philosiphies. arcosanti was his design for how people would live in the future. it looks like something out of star wars. it's located almost right where 17 and 69 split when you are heading north toward prescott.

here's a link to the official website

and here is the wikipedia link
