Fireplace Springs

When I thought I knew of all of the trails in Prescott, I found another gem.  I heard about Fireplace Springs from a friend and decided to find it.  This trail was not in any of my books but I found it on Sharlot Hall Museum’s website, of all places.  Check it out:  My wife and I parked at the Thumb Butte Parking area and began hiking North.  Amazingly, we found this tucked in Riparian area and with brilliant fall color!  The air was crisp and moist from recent rains.  I will certainly come back to this area.
