En Route to Prescott
Between Wickenburg and Prescott, Ariz. 89 climbs out of the desert at the town of Yarnell, which lies at the top of a steep stretch of road. The landscape around Yarnell is a jumble of weather-worn granite boulders that give the town a unique appearance. Several little crafts and antiques shops here are worth a stop. However, the town's main claim to fame is the Shrine of St. Joseph of the Mountains (tel. 928/778-5229; www.stjoseph-shrine.org), which is known for its carved stone Stations of the Cross. Watch for the sign to the shrine as you drive through town.
