Earlier this week we decided to drive over to Prescott to take in the Christmas lights. Rather than drive the expedient highway around Mingus Mountain, we decided to meander up to an elevation of 7,000 feet and enjoy the winding scenic route down to Prescott Valley! We highly recommend it for a daylight drive.
This is the courthouse square.
This view catches the side of the courthouse and the front near the red lights.
This is the back of the courthouse. It is so pretty, I was undecided for awhile, as to whether is was possibly the main entrance!
This is Whiskey Row. We enjoyed a stroll through the shops and around the rest of the square, as well. Including the beautiful drive over the mountain, exploring the Granite Dells, our tour of lights and shops, plus the expedient route home, our adventure only took 5 hours! A very reasonable and fun outing from Cottonwood, through Jerome, to Prescott, and home again!
