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.

Lightening and Thunder comes to Walker.
We’ve had thunder storms almost every day for a week now.
Looks like we’ll be having them for the foreseeable future.
Here’s my attempt at capturing the experience.
Got an email from WFPA today.
Please do not change the fire danger on the Fire Wheel near Blue Jay on
Walker Rd. It is surprising this even needs to be said but someone changed
it to an incorrect fire danger.
The Fire Department alone will take care of this task.
It’s started to rain here in Walker. Everyone is very thankful for that.
Today, it poured. 3 inches in a few hours was dumped on Walker.
Here’s a video of what Lynx Creek looked like today.

What a wonderful turnout for the Pancake Breakfast last Saturday! Over 200
of you came to enjoy the fare. While the cooks struggled to keep up with
the regular mundane pancakes, bacon and sausage the less traditional
breakfasts were also gone. Things like the smoked salmon was gone in the

Cream Cheese disappeared fast. (For you Continental Types) Next month
we’ll be prepared.
We went through 3 flats of strawberries, 2 gallons of milk (and nearly 2 of
chocolate milk), most of […]
