The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Agua Fria National Monument Saturday with a festival at the Horseshoe Ranch in the heart of the monument.
The event will feature tours every half-hour to nearby petroglyphs (ancient rock art), an Audubon bird hike at 9 a.m., American Indian dancers and drummers, scientific lectures, live wild animal displays, traditional artists, live bands, food vendors and visitor information booths.
Visitors will be able to try their hand at primitive skills including chipping rock into arrowheads, building bowls and throwing atlatls, a type of arrow that ancient residents of the Agua Fria National Monument used for hunting between 1250 A.D. and 1450 A.D.
This free event at the Horseshoe Ranch runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To get there from Interstate 17 at Cordes Junction, drive south to the next exit at Bloody Basin (exit 259) and drive east on the dirt Bloody Basin Road about five miles to the ranch. It is accessible by passenger vehicles unless it is raining or snowing.
Sounds like it will be a fun and educational event. We will be there with our soap, lotion and foot cream. We will have 2 new scents...French Vanilla and White Tea & Ginger.
White Tea & Ginger is a nice, clean, sophisticated fragrance of delicate white tea with a hint of fresh ginger.
