Old West Town
Wickenburg Arizona is real 'old west' style town a little way northwest of the Phoenix area. I used to drive through Wickenburg on my way to Yarnell when my friend had the cabin up there. Every now and then we would stop in town and explore a little bit. Above is the Wickenburg train station.
And, the Desert Caballeros Western Museum tells the story of this area from it's mining history all the way up to it's more recent background as a mecca for Dude Ranches. The statue pictured above sits in front of the museum and is named "Thanks for the Rain" by Joe Beeler.
