Sedona Heritage Museum, February 14, 2014

To celebrate St. Valentine’s Day Jacque and I enjoyed a tasty seafood meal at Shugrue’s in Sedona, then went to the Sedona Heritage Museum and learned about pioneer days.

The Jim Thompson Trailhead, where I’ve gone hiking a number of times, is named after a local pioneer. Jim Thompson, 1841-1917, was born in Ireland. He came to the United States and eventually to Arizona, where he married Maggie James in 1880 and lived at his Indian Gardens ranch in Oak Creek Canyon.
