Agave

Ahhh!!! Sedona! I'm here in Sedona this week with a friend. We got in Monday evening and leave here Friday to head on over to Window Rock and to the Hubble Trading Post on Saturday.

We spent today in a nearby town named Jerome that used to be a copper mining town. If you are ever visiting the Sedona/Phoenix/Flagstaff (Arizona) area, do plan a day trip to Jerome and spend your money there. Everyone is friendly, hospitable, not snooty and the prices are much more afforable! I hope to post some of the photos from this trip when I get back home.

In the meantime, in a quest for wildflowers yesterday, this is one of the images I took that appealed to me. I do believe it is an Agave cactus which is in the family of cactus plants that tequila comes from.

Cheers!

Oh, Paula. I grew up in Tucson, and have a good friend in Springerville. (If you get near, email me & I will give you her phone #; surely she will buy you a beer!) You are bringing back memories.

I do believe you are absolutely correct about that cactus
being the source of tequila.

So glad you are having fun exploring the Arizona Jerome/Sedona area!

Gee I'd be kind of tempted to drink those tequila filled plants dry!
