Lynx Lake

Lynx Lake

Saturday morning we drove to Walker Road to look at some trails not previously explored.  After reviewing our trail guide, we decided in the future to attempt using two vehicles, keeping one at the parking area on Walker Road but starting at a higher elevation point off of Senator Highway.  We decided to move on at our second stop as a large number of trail bikes were unloading and we didn’t want to share the trail with them.  We ended up at Lynx Lake where we decided to hike the 2.5 miles 311 Lake Shore Trail.  We did take a short exploratory detour when we hiked up trail 312 to the Hilltop Campground.  Some of the wildflowers we enjoyed included western yarrow, western ragweed, Arizona thistle, birdbill dayflower, beardlip penstemon, and small-flowered globe mallow.  Several people enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on the lake while additional fisherpeople tried their luck from the shore.

Prescott is a great place for music.  This weekend a fundraiser for the Prescott High School Band to participate in a Pearl Harbor event in Hawaii was held at the Yavapai County Courthouse.  Throughout the day musical groups could be found at the stage facing Gurley Street or on the steps of the other three sides of the courthouse.  We listened to the blues of Road One South before breaking for dinner at Rosa’s Pizzeria.  After dinner we listened to some country western tunes by Maverick, before setting up our folding chairs for another blues group, The Jukes.  Prescott had at least two other major events taking place on Saturday.  Prescott has exceptional cultural gatherings.
