We spent a few minutes collecting petrified wood and painted and stamped pottery shards! I've read that the painted pottery is about 1000 years old and the stamped pottery 10,000 years! I wasn't surprised to find so much in the area considering this is only about 4 miles from the office Petrified Forest Park! Evidence shows there are over 13,000 years of human occupation in this area.

2 adjoining 2.5 acres of land for sale in Sun Valley, Arizona about 15 minutes east of Holbrook in Navajo County. It's about 3.25 hours NE of Phoenix between Flagstaff and Gallup, NM. It's close to Interstate 40 with decent access and power about 825 feet away! There was painted Indian pottery and petrified wood scattered everywhere and it sits 4 miles from the Petrified Forest National Park!

All of the photos were taken of the property in April 2018. You can see in the parcel map that this is made up of 4 adjoining 1.25 acre lots. We are willing to sell two adjoining lots so 2.5 acres or all 4 lots for 5 acres!

It sits about 3 miles SE of Interstate 40. The easiest way to access the area is to come in from the west on S 24th Street which is an improved dirt/gravel road. Starlight Road which runs along the north of lots 94 & 95, is also a more improved road as there are neighbors on this road about 5 lots to the east. This road is seen in images #62 & 63. Shooting Star Road which runs along the south of lot 124 & 125 is a dirt road seen in images #1 and 2. It is a bit overgrown from lack of use and could use a blading but it was still an easy drive. There is power 5 lots to the east of lot #94 at the neighbors and I measured its about 825 feet.

It's an interesting view across the Colorado Plateau to the mesas that pop out from the SW to the SE!. A little over a mile to the south is the railroad tracks and just on the other side of the tracks is the Puerco River. You can see the trees along the bosque and we caught a train going thru as seen in image #31-35. The image numbesrs are at the top of the photos. From the NW to the NE is a view of the wide open grassy plateau with a few scattered homes and a few more mesas popping out of the valley floor!

The property is relatively flat and quite grassy. There is a trailer adjoining lot #95 as seen in images 13 & 77 that almost looks abandoned. There is a very cute yellow and green home 5 lots to the east of lot #94 with some super cute glass flowers outside - that's one crafty neighbor as seen in images 86 & 87! They were outside working when we drove by and waved - friendly! At the end of Shooting Star Road there is a neighbor with quite a bit of junk lying about as seen in images 82 & 83. This road is very sandy on the east side and you definitely want to come in from the west side!

We easily found painted and stamped pottery on the property as well as petrified wood! I've read that the painted pottery is about 1000 years old and the stamped pottery is 10,000 years old. It sits about 4 miles west of the Petrified Forest National Park which documents over 13,000 years of human occupation in this area! Part of the park contains the Painted Desert, a strangely beautiful landscape with intriguing land forms with multi-colored layers - truly a magnificent sight!

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."

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's also home of Smile4u! This past year I've fished a few lakes, hiked a few canyons, found Native American pottery shards and petrified wood, taken quad rides, harvested a Christmas tree from the forest, driven over a few one lane bridges, seen a few waterfalls, floated the creek, seen a couple hundred beautiful sunsets, adopted a homeless cat we named Winslow, explored pueblo ruins of the Native Americans, and spotted herds of elk and antelope.

The Apache/Sitgreaves National Forests, often called the White Mountains, and White Mountain Apache Reservation is the second highest mountain range in Arizona. It is very diverse geographically and culturally and known for it’s outstanding fishing, camping, hiking, hunting, golfing and in the winter months cross-country, downhill skiing and snowmobiling.

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. With over 450 miles of streams and 50 lakes with over 2000 surface acres of cold water lakes, many fisherman, bird watchers and hunters are drawn to the area. It also offers winter time recreational fun like skiing and snowmobiling. Here are a few of my fishing adventures these past few years:

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 asked these guys what they were catching and they said catch and release trout because they had so many fish already. I've fished there a few times now myself but still haven't caught anything! Ha!

Fishing at Black Canyon Lake on my 52nd birthday! I caught my face and my middle finger!

The only fish I've caught so far in the White Mountains was this giant blue gill on the Fort Apache Reservation near the Salt River Canyon! I let him go!

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 near Flagstaff. 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."

People often ask me if I miss living in Washington State with her tall pine trees and its an easy answer - NOPE! I love looking across the wide open valley covered in juniper trees, sage brush, native brush, cactus and desert grass. I love watching the colors of the seasons and there's sun for miles no matter what time of year! Home! Char the Explorer : )

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.
