Arizona Highways Takes A Road Trip to Bisbee

Keith Whitney working hard for Arizona Highways.

Last Thursday, a few of us at the magazine hit the road and headed south to Bisbee….. The goal? Check out the town, peruse the many antique shops, have lunch at Santiago’s and get a tour from our own Art Director, Keith Whitney……….. Keith spent his childhood in Bisbee and he graciously gave us a tour of his old stomping grounds.

Arizona Highways loved Bisbee…….. We had a fantastic time and you’ll be seeing the fruits of our trip in a few upcoming issues.

P.S., don’t forget to check out some photos from our trip.

Thank you Bisbee!

TGIF… Now How About Some Pretty Pictures?

It’s Friday and we are still getting some wonderful photographs from our friends on Facebook and via e-mail. So it’s getting to be about that time…  you’re itching to start your weekend — Is it 5:00 yet? It’s 5:00 somewhere! — OK, how about we help you get a grip (or at least get you day dreaming) with some gorgeous shots of our state.

Who knows, it might inspire you to plan your next road trip… gas prices are still relatively low compared to the rest of the country.

The Jerky Girls

One of the great things about taking a road trip, is that along the way, you often discover something unexpectedly awesome.

Case in point, Daniel’s Really Good Fresh Jerky in Parker. Admittedly, my Arizona Highways colleague, Managing Editor Kelly Kramer, and I were skeptical—Really Good? That’s a mighty bold statement my friend.

But, being the jerky fanatic that I am—and the fact that Daniel had multiple billboards advertising his Really Good Fresh Jerky—I asked Kelly if we could stop on our way back. She was more than happy to oblige her new co-worker.

Daniel’s Really Good Fresh Jerky is located in a small, brightly colored building on AZ-95, and inside is pure bliss. At least for jerky lovers. Daniel carries almost every kind of jerky imaginable—plus, rows of olives, honey, nuts and some really hot sauce.

Covering an entire wall of his tiny store were dehydrated slabs of elk, venison, buffalo, tuna, salmon, and turkey—even alligator made the cut. His jerky comes in a variety of flavors (Kelly picked up Cowboy flavor), plus a few unusual ones………. those who can handle the heat ought to try Daniel’s Colon Cleaner jerky; slabs of beef covered in a fiery combination of hot spices—not for the faint of heart!

If you’re not in the Parker neighborhood, Daniel has a second jerky outpost in Quartzsite.
