Candles, Cars and CowsThe camera is always near to capture scenes from the Armadilla Wax Works' candle workshop and along the roadside to and from the shop. I realize that cows are not an unusual site out West but the ranch lands and native American reservation lands weave their way in and around the cities. You never know when you might see a few grazing cows or places where the antelope roam ...
As more land gets fenced in, some of these areas, and cows, are still reminders of the big sky country and the western way of life.
July 4th is a really big deal in these parts and the World's Oldest Rodeo continues to draw locals and visitors to the events and to the July 4th parade in historic downtown Prescott every year.
The rodeo and the parade are definitely connected with lots of horseback riders proudly displaying their banners.
Heading out to Prescott Valley where the Armadilla candle store lives, I could not help but take a few photos from my car.
So let's get back to Armadilla Wax Works' candle making workshop and store where we make candles... so ... what's this Bentley doing in the candle factory?
Well, a portion of the space, adjacent to where candles are made, lives an interesting collection of classic cars from the elegant Bentley to Rat Rod.
The collector is a friend with an eclectic taste in cars.
