So long to the West.

    We love Greasewood Flat, an old stagecoach stop and bunkhouse (1880’s?), up in the mountains at Reata Pass, now a cool biker bar, off the road, just across from the FOUR SEASONS, SCOTTSDALE… quite a contrast. Look up the story of DOC CAVALIERRE, who owned it for years, Scottsdale’s eldest native:

    GREASEWOOD shrubs are known as Creosote or Chapparral, and their resinous leaves perfume the air after a rainstorm. The REATA is a braided lariat or lasso, American Spanish, braided from hemp, or better yet from very fine strips of cowhide.

    Time to leave came too soon; I hope you’ve had a safe trip home.
