Welcome to Wickenburg! “Wickenburg� Even the sound of it is Western. Don’t you agree? This historic Western town is actually named after its founding father, Henry Wickenburg, who discovered gold in the area in the mid-1800s. Arizona’s richest gold mine prompted a town on the Hassayampa River which soon included a railroad, and bustling business community, as well as cattle ranches and other agriculture – and later dude ranches. Present-day Wickenburg has all the modern amenities, a booming retirement population and vibrant local economy. At the same time, Wickenburg celebrates its roots with annual events, and

ottery B is a small art and trinkets shop located in the heart of downtown Wickenburg. The shop is owned and operated by Brooke Walters, an Arizona native and Wickenburg resident since 1982. Walters has always appreciated art, but her passion for creating it began in Tucson where she attended high school and took art classes. Her art teacher inspired her, and she enjoyed every aspect of the class. She credits art for her success in school. Walters lived in several Arizona towns before eventually settling in Wickenburg with her husband and two kids. They bought a feed and tack store and did that for awhile until she got a job at Wickenburg High School. She was a natural at teaching and eventually taught culinary arts full time. Twenty-one years later, she decided to follow her childhood dream of owning an arts shop. “I used to go shopping with my mom who really liked art,â€? Walters said. “I always used to go through the shops and think ‘someday I’m going to have one of these.’ It took a lot of hard work to get here.â€? Walters loves everything about owning a business, and especially the customers who have become her friends and the small town support she receives. She chose to open her business in Wickenburg because she was always drawn to the desert surrounding the town and the people. “I am humbled by how many people appreciate what I do,â€? said Walters. “It’s a really neat feeling that someone enjoys what I make so much.â€? Pottery B is bright and inviting, with colorful pots, mugs and trinket trays dispersed on shelves, and southwestern paintings GRWWLQJWKHZDOOV,QWKHEDFNFXVWRPHUVFDQĂ€QG:DOWHUVEXV\ at the wheel, spinning bowls into shape and working on special orders.

Go on the Walking Tour of Wickenburg.. Grab a bite to eat and shop along the way! Starting out at the corner of Yavapai and Frontier street. Here, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the beautifully restored 1895 Santa Fe Railroad Depot, alongside a steam engine from 1890 and an intriguing red caboose from yesteryear. Step inside the depot for a look around and pick up a Walking Tour Guide. This helpful little pamphlet includes a map of historic downtown Wickenburg and 31 points of

interest, all within easy walking distance of the depot. (Of course you can drive it as well.) Along the way, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find attractions such as the old brick post office where settlers arrived on horseback to pick up mail. The building houses a dry cleaner and laundry service now, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see the original bricks and imagine the hitching rail out front. The old livery stable around the other side of the block was built in 1890 and today houses several businesses along Tegner Street. With the help of the guide, the discerning eye can still make out the angle of the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corners, which was transformed from livery stable to car dealership and gas station as times changed. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure to meet lots of friendly faces inside the shops full of items

and furniture made by local artisans. Restaurants can be found all along the way as you enjoy your walking tour. Some other friendly faces are those of the painted bronzes along the sidewalks. These folks represent actual people in early Wickenburg. Start out with the school teacher near the depot. Having just stepped off the train in Wickenburg, she is looking down the street hoping to find her way to the school and the family she will be staying with as she takes on her new job. This is one of nine bronzes listed on the walking tour. The walking tour brochure is available in printed form at various businesses around town, as well as at the depot, which houses Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center. It is online at www.outwickenburgway.com,

Probably the best kept secret in all of Arizona, Vulture City is an amazing look at Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and at Wickenburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start. Legend tells us that prospector Henry Wickenburg was in the area in the mid-1800s and found an incredibly rich ore vein where it cropped up out of a hillside. Before long, miners were digging treasure out of what became Vulture Mine. The nearest water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; necessary in the processing of ore â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was at the Hassayampa River which gave rise to a little town on the river which would come to be called Wickenburg. But the mine prompted more than the town of Wickenburg into existence. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historians say Vulture Mine is also responsible for the establishment of Phoenix, where farmers and cattlemen raised enough food to supply Vulture City. Vulture Mine operated continuously until World War II when the US government shut it down because it was deemed nonessential to the war effort.

Gold Rush fans, y’all come on out! The excitement in Wickenburg continues to build each year during the month of January as local residents join in the planning for the annual heritage event known as Gold Rush Days. Gold Rush Days began in 1948 under the direction of the Round-Up Club (now the chamber of commerce). Many local organizations came together to promote this new event, including many of the dude ranches in Wickenburg and surrounding areas. Gold panning was incorporated into the day’s activities, and a location was

chosen north of town on the Hassayampa River. That first celebration occurred on a rainy day in January when nearly 100 people found gold and enjoyed the rodeo, making a successful event. Two years later the date was moved to the second full weekend in February where it remains to this day. A parade and gold mining contests were added, along with the Saddle Club barbeque, and the location was moved to downtown Wickenburg. By the mid-1960s, the carnival, melodrama and arts and crafts show were

The rodeo is one of many popular events in the annual heritage festival for Wickenburg known as Gold Rush Days, a celebration of the ranching and mining traditions of the historic western town.

added to the festivities, and the event grew to become a full three-day weekend of activities. Gold Rush Days organizers estimate that between 50-60,000 people come to enjoy Wickenburg during those days. Most of the planning and execution of the events is handled by a small group of volunteers, the chamber staff team and board of directors as well as town of Wickenburg employees. The weekend kicks off with opening ceremonies on Frontier Street Friday at 8 a.m. Brown’s carnival opens Thursday night at 5 p.m. A car show, huge craft fair and art show are also part of the entertainment. The Senior Pro Rodeo runs all weekend at the Everett Bowman Arena, and you won’t want to miss the always popular old-tyme mellodrama each evening at the historic Saguaro Theatre in downtown Wickenburg. Tickets can be purchased at the chamber office on Frontier Street. The famous Gold Rush Days parade has become a favorite event around the state of Arizona, with many participants submitting their entries a year in advance to secure their spot. Attendees are sure to be delighted by school bands, classic cars, and of course lots of horses and unique floats created by groups and individuals from all around the state. The parade begins at 10 a.m. Saturday. More information about Gold Rush Days can be found at visitwickenburg. com. or at (928) 684-5479.

Cowgirl Up! Art Show and Sale In 2006, Desert Caballeros Western Museum embraced a revolutionary idea: an annual exhibition showcasing the brightest contemporary female artists working in the Western genre. In the male-dominated world of Western Art, Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West turned the spotlight squarely on womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voices and perspectives, serving up a new, deeper understanding of the American West. Now in its 13th year, Cowgirl Up! remains one of the major national events for Western women artists. The 2018 Cowgirl Up! exhibition and sale runs March 23 - May 13. More than 50 of the CU! artists make the trek to Wickenburg for opening weekend each year. CU! artists ride the range of techniques, styles, and mediums, from traditional to contemporary. All of the art is available for purchase, meaning that each sale supports the endeavors of women artists working today and of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum.

During the exhibitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening weekend, March 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 25, 2018, Frontier Street in front of the Museum transforms into a tented venue for catered dinners, dancing, live auctions and an artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quick draw. Friday evening, March 23, will include the Miniatures Sale and Artists and Patrons Party. The evening ^PSSĂ&#x201E;UPZO^P[OHZ[YLL[KHUJL\UKLY the tent to music by Trio Rio. Saturday, March 24, is a full day, beginning with an Artists and Collectors Forum in the TVYUPUNHUKĂ&#x201E;UPZOPUN^P[O[OLWVW\SHY Bash and Bid Sale for pieces in the Main Gallery, and Artist Awards Ceremony. The chuckwagon breakfast and artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quick draw on the morning of Sunday, March 25, is a perennial favorite. More than a dozen of the Cowgirl Up! artists in attendance line the street, armed with paintbrushes and sculpting tools. Their mission: to create a piece of art in 90 minutes. After the time is up, the art goes straight to the auction block for the audience to bid on. Tickets for

opening weekend events range from $10 to $275 and are available at westernmuseum.org or by calling 928684-2272 A month-long exhibition and sale follows opening weekend, running through May 13. The show is included with general Museum admission. CU! art can be bought throughout the run of the exhibition at the Museum or online at westernmuseum.org. (Photo by Craig Cutler)

Granite Mountain Hotshot State Park

O

n June 30, 2013, the lightningcaused Yarnell Hill Fire raged out of control, burned into the town of Yarnell, and destroyed 129 structures. Tragically, 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots were killed west of town GXULQJWKHPXOWLDJHQF\ÀJKW7KRVH men from the Prescott area have been honored and commemorated in many ways by their communities and the town of Yarnell. The state of Arizona joined in that remembrance with the recent opening of the Granite Mountain Hotshots State Park. The park includes a trail leading from Highway 89 up and over the granite boulders of Yarnell Hill to an observation deck where the actual fatality site can be seen. The hike from the parking area to the observation deck is 2.85 miles. Every 600 feet, a polished granite memorial plaque shares a story and photo of one of the 19 hotshots. The climb is steep and rocky and gains 1,200 feet in elevation with 5% to 8% grades and more than 200 stairs carved in the boulder fields. Interpretive signs and benches are found along the way. Nationwide Sales & Service

At the 2.85-mile mark, hikers stop and read the story of the Yarnell Hill Fire and study the timeline to learn how the wildfire, which had been burning northward in the direction of Peeples Valley, suddenly changed direction and overtook part of Yarnell as well as the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Far below the observation deck, in a pocket on the valley floor, a circle of 19 rock-filled gabions are linked together with chain and contain 19 crosses marking the approximate location where the firemen deployed their shelters in hopes of survival. Benches for rest and contemplation surround the memorial. An American flag stands guard. To reach the fatality site, hikers can take the 3/4-mile Journey Trail which drops 400 feet from the observation deck to the valley floor. The entire route is about 7 miles out and back. It does not loop. Arizona State Parks officials recommend planning for the trip to take at least 4 hours. No water, restrooms or trash receptacles are available on the trail. The trail is dog friendly (on a leash) with

minimal cactus. Hikers are encouraged to pack plenty of water for themselves and their dogs, and pick up after themselves and their furry friends. The hike is considered challenging, due to the rocky terrain and constant climb. State Parks officials recommend leaving the trail head before noon, and carrying a flashlight in case the sun goes down. Weather conditions may change during an outing, so plan ahead with proper clothing and footwear. To reach the trail head from Wickenburg, take US 93 north. Just past Wickenburg Ranch, stay to the right to merge onto Highway 89 north toward Congress. Beyond Congress, the highway splits and winds up the side of Yarnell Hill. As you near the top of the hill, look for an opportunity to turn left and intersect with the southbound lanes. The trail head will appear on the right in a short distance. If you reach Yarnell, you’ve gone too far, but you can always stop for a bite to eat or browse through unique antique stores before you hike.

Each hole is a chapter in a larger story, with varying distances, compass directions, and skill requirements woven into the experience.

However, it has created a short window during which time the club is allowing a limited amount of unaccompanied non-member play. Reservations are available 30 days in advance by calling (928) 668-5535 or using the online booking.
