We stopped for a few minutes and collected Native American painted and stamped pottery shards and petrified wood! I've been told that the pottery ranges between 1000 and 10,000 years old. The eastern edge of the property sits about 1/2 of a mile away from the Petrified Forest National Park which has been inhabited for over 13,000 years. The rainbow colored petrified wood is made up of almost solid quartz and sparkles in the sunlight!

PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

7.57 acres of land for sale in Holbrook, Arizona with power and decent access only 400 feet away! It sits about 1/2 mile away from the Petrified Forest National Park and there was scattered pottery and petrified wood everywhere! It's close to Interstate 40 between Flagstaff and Gallup, New Mexico about 4 hours NE of Phoenix.

All of the photos were taken in February 2018 of the property and its surrounding views. There is decent access out to the area off Interstate 40 off the Adamana Road exit. It's part of Old Route 66 and is an excellent graveled road that leads 7.5 miles SE to Seventeenth Street. 17th Street is a decent bladed road that leads 1/2 mile to the NW corner of lot #14 that has power running along it as well to the neighbors which sits about 400 feet to the west. The rest of 17th Street is an overgrown road that I drove over in my truck to reach the east side of the property. You would need to re blade this road for easy access but wow it was easy access to that point for being so far off the beaten path.

*Note - this property was originally for sale with 12 adjoining lots totaling 14.05 but we have sold the adjoining 6.48 acres.

I thought it was a cute chunk of land that's mostly flat with a gentle roll and low vegetation. It looks like cows have grazed it in the past and this is open range. These lots are already subdivided but we are only willing to sell them in groups of 6 or all 12 lots! You could resell them individually with no additional paperwork since they are all ready subdivided but I sure would like to see this beautiful chunk of land stay together!

Amber and I stopped along the road for about 5 minutes and collected a couple handfuls of painted and stamped Native American pottery shards and petrified wood! The east edge of the property sits only 1/2 mile away from the boundary of the Petrified Forest National Park!



Here's a bit of information about the petrified wood from their website: "Petrified wood found in the park and the surrounding region is made up of almost solid quartz. Each piece is like a giant crystal, often sparkling in the sunlight as if covered by glitter. The rainbow of colors is produced by impurities in the quartz, such as iron, carbon, and manganese."

There are great views of a mesa to the S and SW from the eastern lots because they're a bit higher on the gentle hill. Beyond them hidden in the clouds in the far distance to the SE are the White Mountains seen in image #34.

The White Mountains are considered the playground for people in the Phoenix and Tucson areas who wish to escape to the cooler temperatures of the higher altitude. It's the home of the Apache/Sitgreaves National Forests and White Mountain Apache Reservation. It is the second highest mountain range in Arizona.

It is home to more than 400 species of animals including antelope, elk, deer, fish, big horn sheep, mountain lions, black bears and gray wolves. Many fisherman, bird watchers and hunters are drawn to the area. It also offers winter time recreational fun like skiing and snowmobiling.

There are more than 400 miles of rivers and streams and 50 lakes. I fell in love with Big Lake in November 2015 and included a few photos of fisherman out having fun! It is considered one of the White Mountains best fishing lakes because of its size and amount of trout caught. I've fished there a few times now myself but still haven't caught anything! Ha!



Within two or three hours are some of the most interesting Indian ruins and parks to explore including Canyon de Chelly, Window Rock, Monument Valley, Walnut Canyon and Wuptaki National Monument. My favorite spot to take visitors is to the Wukoki ruin which is part of the Wuptaki National Monument. It resembles an old castle and is enormous and makes me marvel at how they made it by hand!

If you look closely you can see Buddy standing on the steps on the right hand side!


One of the greatest adventures in my lifetime was my trip in 2017 to Monument Valley which sits about 200 miles NE of Holbrook. I met up with a Navajo guide Roger for a jeep tour of Mystery Valley and Monument Valley. At one point he beckoned me to sit beside him as he painted a Kokopeli with sand on a rock in front of one of the ruins. He first spent a moment touching the rock with his hands, feeling it. I sat quietly and watched so mesmerized by how quickly the image came to life.





Roger had been joking with us that if we listened we would hear the Kokopelis flute calling us to him. Apparently he calls all the ladies, a modern day Casanova. He was said to travel to villages bringing the change of winter to spring, carrying a sack of seeds and songs on his back. He is the source of human conception and everyone would sing and dance when they heard his flute. The next morning every maiden in the village would be with child.



When we were done I said we should say a prayer or something - it was so spiritual. And before we left Roger walked over to the rock and said a quick prayer then used a stick to erase the image. I asked him what he had said in his native tongue and it was something along the lines of "I did not have the right to draw on this rock and I have erased it to show respect."



It's easy to see why I call the White Mountains home. Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

Apache and Navajo County Area Information

Apache County has a population of about 69,423 and encompasses 11,216 square miles. The Apache and Navajo Indian Reservations cover more than 65.4% of the county and more land is designated Indian Reservation than any other county in the USA. Approximately 21 percent is public land and 13.2 is privately owned so majority of the land is not for sale. Its also home of the Petrified Forest National Park and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.

Adjoining to the west is Navajo County with a population of about 107,500, encompasses 9,960 square miles. Many people think that Arizona is a vast, open desert without vegetation but Navajo County offers Monument Valley, Keams Canyon, part of the Petrified Forest National Park, and the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in North America.

The counties offers extreme diverse regions with the forested White Mountains and green pastures in the south and high, dry, colorful plateau regions to the north. The Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert that we learn about in our elementary school geography books, offer visitors a spectacular journey into prehistoric times.

The dinosaurs originally came to the banks of the Little Colorado River and then the Indians. Pioneer families arrived from the east in the early 1880's. Scattered over the greater portion of the county and especially along the Colorado Chiquita River are many ruins of a prehistoric people. There is plenty of pure spring water in every town and village in the county, constantly fed by the rains and melting snow in the mountains.

The area is gorgeous and not what you would typically think of when you think of the desert. With elevation ranging from 4,000 to 10,000 feet, plush green pastures with animals grazing in the plateau region to the north and the snowcapped ski slopes in the White Mountains to the south offer a picturesque setting.

The area has four seasons with warm summer months and a few snow days in the wintertime. The snow usually melts in the lower altitudes in a day or two but the White Mountains become a wintertime playground.

Excellent fishing, hunting and skiing make the White Mountains a year-round recreation area for many living in the hot Phoenix sun. It is home of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests with 8 notable cold water lakes and numerous lakes and reservoirs: Aker Lake, Big Lake, Woods Canyon Lake, Willow Springs Lake,Black Canyon Lake, Chevelon Canyon Lake, Luna Lake, Bear Canyon Lake, Crescent Lake, and Blue River. There are over 680 miles of rivers and streams and the headwaters for the Black, Little Colorado and San Francisco rivers are in the White Mountains.
