We have had a fabulous stay at the Chisholm Trails End B&B, high atop the ‘P-Hill’ overlooking Prescott and a hundred miles to the north and west. Brian and Lettie have taken good care of us in this Frank Lloyd Wright designed home, with an incredible view of the sunset. He has befriended the local javelinas, who come around at sunrise and sunset, and are very cute!
We met up with the organizer for the Prescott Women’s March, Pat Beitel, and two of her ‘Wild Women’ compatriots, Maria Lynam and Ceci Tower, and shared our stories and passions for standing up for our civil liberties and organizing for change locally, but thinking about the state and national political elections also. It has convinced Maggie and me that the Women’s Marches are absolutely a powerful grassroots movement with so much in common, and so much we can learn from each other, and that when we unite, we will be a force to be reckoned with. I am certain that we will all see each other again, and hopefully, at a regional convening of the Western Women’s Marches.
Ceci and Pat encouraged us to check out a wonderful hike on the Constellation Trails north of Prescott, amongst those beautiful red rock formations, preceded by a visit to the Phippen Museum of Western Art. Maybe we worked off the steak and shake from the day before?
Tomorrow, on to Chaco Canyon!
