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.

Rain Has Come To Walker

There have been some small amounts of rain over the last couple of months, but no real downpour until Saturday, August 22, 2020.

Here’s a photo of the rainbow as the rain was coming into the valley.

It was followed by a huge downpour with hail. We have a metal roof and it sounded like someone was throwing rocks at the cabin. It came down hard.

The small white spots in the photo at actually hail falling to the ground. You can see my shadow at the bottom as I hold my camera up over my head.

All they had […]

WFPA face masks

Got an email from WFPA. They have face masks now!

OK, it’s been about 5 months since we all were introduced to the Coronavirus. We were all hoping it would be long gone by now, but it’s not. Arizona is still considered a “hotspot”. Wearing masks is a part of our “normal” when going out in public, so why not do it in style?

On August 20th, I will be receiving a limited supply of embroidered “Walker WFPA” face masks. They are 3 layer cotton, adjustable, and machine washable. They come in black or silver/gray. […]

We’ll go back under restrictions without more rain.
