Strawberry, AZ, site of the Oldest standing School house in Arizona - 08/27/08 06:50 PM
If you come to visit in Payson or Pine, consider a side trip to the old school house in Strawberry. This is a restored, one room school house which is open to tour on weekends through mid October. The school was built in 1884 to service families in the area. Strawberry is a small town about 20 miles North of Payson, on Hwy 87. It is nestled RIGHT below the Mogollan Rim. If you head North from Strawberry you begin to climb immediately until you are on top of the Rim. There are not a lot of businesses in Strawberry, but (5 comments)

Pine, AZ turns into a Carnival for Labor Day weekend. - 08/26/08 02:59 PM
Pine is an attractive, small town about 15 miles North of Payson, on Hwy. 87. Pine is home to many antique shops, craft shops, and art galleries. On Holiday weekends in the Summer the Pine-Strawberry Arts & Crafts Guild features a craft show on the grounds of the old school house, with many and varied booths selling all sorts of interesting items. The shops along the highway are open, some people put up booths along the street. People park wherever they can, and walk up and down the street looking at everything. It makes for a very ferstive time. This coming (2 comments)
The Locusts are coming! How do you stop a plague? (NOT RE related- gardening) - 08/22/08 01:42 PM
I'm posting this in hopes someone has a sure-fire way to get rid of grasshoppers. In the last few days I've been all over the internet looking, and I've found some interesting articles, but not much help.You see, right now if I walk through my yard these little sobs grasshoppers pop up ahead of me like popcorn. So far they are mostly small, and mostly in the grass (or what passes for grass in Payson), but I know as they get bigger they will move on my flowers. Last year they managed to strip ALL my plants TO THE STEMS. This (10 comments)

More information about Payson, AZ Schools - 08/06/08 04:35 PM
I posted last week about Payson Schools beginning the year EARLY. Payson public schools began last Wednesday. If you are a parent in (or may be moving to) the Payson area I'm sure the schools are of concern to you. Payson has a unified public School District, consisting of Julia Randall Elementary, Payson Elementary, and Frontier Elementary (K-5th grade); Rim Country Middle School (6th - 8th grades); Payson High School, and Payson Center for Success (a high school for 16 to 21 year olds who want/need an alternative to traditional HS). Julia Randall and the Middle School are currently undergoing construction/renovation. (0 comments)
This is the season (the Monsoon, officially) for clouds and storms in Northern, Arizona. In past years we have been in a serious drought, but this year we are actually ABOVE the 30 year average for precipitation. We talk to rental Owners in the Phoenix area, and they haven't gotten much rain this Summer. I thought I would share some pretty shots of our storm clouds.
These pictures were taken from our deck. We face North/Northeast, so we have a great view of storms coming down off the Mogollan Rim. Yesterday evening we had visitors (3 comments)
