In the following blog, Colton takes you on a visual journey through some of Prescott’s most iconic scenery. You can click on the image to view a larger version.
First we start off with Thumb Butte, one of the highest points in Prescott.
Thumb Butte and the surrounding area looks just as stunning in the Winter
Next, we take a look at the lakes near to Embry-Riddle campus (Watson and Willow Lake).
My friends and I often take our multirotors out to the lake for some aerial photos and video.
This is the back of Watson Lake dam
One of my favorite spots in Prescott is Spruce Mountain Lookout. From the top of the mountain you are rewarded with a beautiful view of Prescott below.
Another hidden gym is Prescott’s Lynx Creek system. In winter/spring the creek flows with snowmelt and produces gorgeous scenery.
Our final destination is Prescott’s Downtown Courthouse square. The square presents beautiful colors in the fall as well as spring, and in the winter the entire courthouse and surroundings are covered with Christmas lights. For more info on that see this blog -> https://riddlenationaz.erau.edu/tag/lights/
Included below are a few more photos that showcase some random but amazing scenery surrounding Prescott, Arizona.
