Maricopa. AZ. 114 miles. Dirt lot. Warm. Long jump over the mountains from Globe and down into the Phoenix valley south to Maricopa. Busy day stocking up on all of those essentials to be found in a major city. Meat for the cats, concessions supplies, vehicle parts.

Wickenburg, AZ. 100 miles. Dirt lot. Warm, windy. Last date in AZ. Tomorrow it’s into California. Wickenburg is a beautiful little western desert foothills town with shops, and art galleries, and cafes. Less developed and undiscovered than Sedona, and well off the beaten path at the end of the Carefree Highway. In California the show will turn north after the long run west. In the dust and dirt it’s hard to imagine that in a couple months this circus will be playing grassy summer lots in the midwest.
