Welcome to Walker Community!
Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.
Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.
Everyone loves it here.

We got an email from the WFPA:
Residents of the Community,
We are experiencing an increase in vehicles being parked at the Fire Station without prior approval. The space there is for WFPA use only. In the event emergencies these vehicles hinder operations.
Our Fire Station is an extremely important asset to the community. The Fire Fighters that voluntarily serve WFPA need immediate access to the Fire Station as first responders, the water supply to fill the equipment and parking for their personal vehicles for response to emergency calls.
The Fire Station area along with the area for the […]

The sun was shining on Saturday. There were piles of snow everywhere, but with the sun out, the world seemed to have hope again.
I took my first drive into Walker.
The asphalt was pretty cleaned up, but the dirt roads were an adventure.
I made it to my own plow truck, pictured below, and spent a couple hours plowing the road from where the county plows left off, down to our house.
Below are photos from the drive.
I have a sign at the corner of Big Big and Walker Road. You can almost see it in the photo below. […]
The snow continues on Friday. It looks like another foot fell after two feet yesterday, but your mileage may vary.
The snow stopped for a bit in the afternoon, then started again.
It finally stopped about 5:00 pm and the sun even came out for a few moments.
A friend sent the main photo to us while on her hike on Friday morning. Our cabin in in the photo.
The photo of the large lump of snow is their car. You can see the rear view mirror sticking out of the side.
The other photos are more of the Hassayampa Inn and […]
