It's kind of weird to have a midwestern boy like me to bring you a western Christmas wish.
I made a fast test trip out to Arizona, including a trip from west Phoenix to Kingman on Sunday. Naturally, I planned my time so that I could stop at Anita's Mexican Kucina in Wickenburg for lunch.
Wickenburg is a small, traditional town with a history of ranching nearby. These cell phone pictures are poor, but still capture the feel of a desert cowboy Christmas.
Of course, the local picture show is a great place on Sunday morning to hold "Cowboy Church". I am pretty sure that the pickup and the Jeep would qualify as cowboy transportation. I'm not sure if cowboys also ride Harley's or if the bikes come from the "Twin Wheels Cafe" next door down.
In particular, I like the Christmas wreaths on either side of the Saguaro cactus sign on the theater.
