Issue 311 – Time Out for Arizona, Part 3

Issue 311  –  The Paregien Journal  –  Stan Paregien, Editor – November 9, 2015

This is the final segment of three on our week in the Sedona, Arizona area. The dates were from Oct. 11 to Oct. 18, 2015. And we flew there with friends Don and Judy Betts, and we all stayed in their very comfortable condon at The Ridge at Sedona Golf Resort.

Here, then, are the rest of the photos from that wonderful experience.

Arizona -- Jerome -- 01

Jerome, Arizona is a high desert “ghost town” at an elevation of 5,240 feet. It was founded as a copper mining camp in 1876.

2015--10--16 2414--F Clarkdale, AZ - HOW THE WEST WAS WON

Near the end of “How the West Was Won,” the character played by Debbie Reynolds is old and she arrives at a small railroad station in Arizona named “Gold City” (“Perkinsville” is on the station sign today). The character played by George Peppard is Ms. Reynold’s nephew. He is a sheriff who is, by her request, retiring as a sheriff in favor of running her large ranch. He and his wife, daughter and two boys pick her up in a buckboard and they head back to Debbie Reynold’s ranch which she had never seen. That last part was probably filmed in Monument Valley, Utah, a favorite filming location for Western movie director legend John Ford. Mr. Ford directed one-third of this long movie. This first-class, stunt-filled film featured 25 or so significant movie stars in short pieces.

Next, we will take a look at the photos which Peggy took during her recent trip to the Portland, Oregon area.

Soon we will return to post Part 2 of our review of an autobiographical book by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate from Florida seeking to become the next president of the United States.
