Yavapai

A/Z - a place dear to me

Y - Yavapai


I live in Yavapai County in Arizona.  Yavapai is a Native American Tribe.  It is pronounced "Ya-va-pie."

This is one of two hospitals in the area; both are run by the same hospital group.  One is in Prescott where I live and the other one in Prescott Valley which is the town right next to ours.  Both are trauma centers and serve a big area of Arizona.

Hubby works for them.  He is based at this one but also has responsibilities at the other one too.

We are winding down with the A/Z challenge. Just want to thank everyone for their visits and their comments :)

Is your husband a doctor?

I've enjoyed following along with you, and have really looked forward to your creative responses! =)

I think that's the same tribe that inhabited the Grand Canyon? Or at least the falls is named for them!

Thanks Betty for being my steady A-Z companion.

Looks to have easy parking, the one here, no such luck.

We have enjoyed the A-Z trip. It is a unique idea. Today is a new word and tribe to me. As I have traveled out west I have been surprised at the number of 'nations' within out Nation.

I'm glad your hubby found work here - I hope he is enjoying it and that it allows him time to play guitar!

I've enjoyed A-Y and am sure to enjoy Z!

When I visited Arizona, I really enjoyed exhibits and museums featuring Native American heritage. I remember in 5th grade studying the various types of tribes throughout the United States, so it was fun seeing my early learning come to life. I clicked on the link to the Yavapie website. I'm surprised the tribe has so few members. Is that typical?

Beverly Fox said...

Insanely late to the party here but hi and congrats on making it through the challenge! Arizona is a gorgeous part of the country- lovely to share it with us!

That blue sky lights up that building!
Betty, it is great meeting and communicating with you. I'm following so you'll see me... smile!!

Thank you very much for the comments and support you've given me. What a fun journey this has been. Loved your theme!

Never heard of a tribe called Yavapai. Looks like you did much better than me at the challenge. ;-)

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I have enjoyed all your A-Z posts and have learned a lot I din't know before.

Linda said...

So grateful that Yavapai has been a blessing!

Chrys Fey said...

Good thing you told me how to pronounce it correctly. ;P

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Those last few letters are not easy ones. Cool that you actually moved into Yavapai County which gave you a "Y" post! So happy that his new job is working out.

I've always wanted to visit Arizona. And I am glad I've gotten to read your posts through the challenge.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I've really enjoyed learning about Arizona through your eyes. That medical center looks very new.

It's been an interesting journey for me. I so enjoyed reading your posts each day. Just one to go, but I'm sure I'll be back.

The word Yavapai, sounds sorta musical...it's pretty sounding. Have enjoyed popping back and forth for blog visits, am glad we met through a to z.

I have an aunt that lives in Buckeye and the street she lives on is Yavapai.

Kat said...

You are doing a great job on the A-Z. These last few (X, Y, Z) have got to be difficult. Well done!

Paula Kaye said...

I love the Indian names!

Danielle L Zecher said...

It's good to be close to two big hospitals.

susie said...

I thought hubby was a musician. Is this hospital gig his side job? :)

Mildred said...

Very interesting. I have enjoyed your A-Z posts. Since meeting you, each time I see a bench with an awesome view, I think of you!

Liz A. said...

I said it right! Thanks for the pronunciation key. I'm surprised I got it right on the first try. I'm usually terrible with names.

Megan Whitson Lee said...

Interesting name and the Native American connection. It looks like a nice hospital!

yaya said...

I bet my small hospital where I work would fit in the lobby of your husband's new workplace! Cool name! It came in handy for the challenge!

Birgit said...

What a great Y post. Curious what your hubby does. No matter what it sounds like a great responsibility. It was great visiting you during the A to Z and will continue:)

Mevely317 said...

This has been such fun, Betty. I look forward to seeing what else is up your sleeve, so to speak! :)

Nick Wilford said...

Only one day to go! I like the name Yavapai.

Sunni said...

Beautiful medical facility. They build many places in that style and color where I live so it blends in with the natural landscape.

Looks very modern and up to date - just like a hospital should :)

Trauma centers...that could be a very stressful place, couldn't it? Hubby probably sees more than he wants...and finds plenty of reasons to pray.

DMS said...

Hospitals are so important. Thanks for sharing about this one and the Yavapai.
