Funtry Friday 'round the block

You just never know what you will find lurking around out here...

Paulden frog rock art

A bit south of Paulden (which means the Pink Place and the PO) and just north of the bridge before Sullivan Lake (which really isn't a lake) is this painted frog rock art.  I guess someone thought we should have one since Skull Valley has one.

It's a start, but we have a long way to go, because Skull Valley has a lot of funky painted rock art.  Check out Granny J's blog post, Route of the Painted Rocks, to see some really cool pictures of what's 'off road' out there.  She posted some closer shots of this big guy, too.

Meanwhile back in Chino Valley, the Prescott Valley Art Guild had a nice collection of artwork on display for the Windmill Farms Springfest.  Yep - this is where my little truck painting was showing off its colors.

Out on the road at Sunset Point, the smoke from the Crown King fire was still coloring the air brown this week.

And the view from my back porch says the winds today didn't help the firefighters north of me...

Yeah, you are supposed to be seeing hills out there...  Keep all those firefighters and those in the path of the fires in your prayers, please!

Hope you all have a fun and safe weekend - and a great Funtry Friday!



  1. Boo on the fires, beautiful art display, and love the painted rocks.

  2. I'm sad about all the fires. It will be quite a challenge this year.
    The painted rocks are very fun. It's so interesting what folks do to liven up the scenery.
    The art show looks great! I hope it was a good one for you!

  3. Gorgeous pictures of the hills. It was neat seeing the gallery, too. So sorry to hear about the fires.

  4. That frog art is so cute! Wish I could have gone to the art show! Those fires are horrible.

  5. Oh, no. Hope those fires get contained soon and no one is hurt.

  6. Thanks, Jane! A lot of the smoke had cleared today. Yay! The painted rocks crack me up! LOL

    Thanks, Splendid! It has been really dry - hoping for some early summer rains.
    We had a lot of traffic at the show and many good comments.
    Not sure who thought up the idea to paint the rocks - they have been that way for many years.

    Thanks, Rose - it is really pretty out there =)
    Hope that they get all the fires under control soon!
    It was fun to see the guild members' artwork in the show. There are a lot of very talented people in the guild!

    Thanks, Sharla! Glad I could bring a little of the show to you ;-) Hopefully they will be contained soon!

    Me, too, Erika!

  7. The frogs are cute :)
    Sending my thoughts to all those brave fire fighters!

  8. Looks like your art show was a lot of fun.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
