We found out it's possible to hike quite a distance in just one afternoon all the way to beautiful views and wide open expanses though...and that we are so small in this vast world. Another Bittersweet day here in the Village of Oak Creek, Arizona. It's DAY 24. -Andrea
So if you were on 179 or I-17 and saw anything, let the Yavapai Sheriff know about your observations.Yavapai deputies continue search for missing man, 66

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office continues to look for a 66-year-old man who went missing Oct. 19.
James Schwartz is about 5 foot 8 inches, 190 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen by his wife at their home in the Village of Oak Creek.
A note left by Schwartz indicated that he was likely despondent, according to sheriff’s officials. He and his wife got into an argument on Oct. 18.
On Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office received a tip that a hitchhiker was seen around 5 p.m. Oct. 19 on Highway 179 near the U.S. Forest Service ranger station who partially matched the description of Schwartz. The man was attempting to flag down vehicles heading toward Interstate 17.
The clothes the man was seen wearing matched the description of Schwartz’s, a gray fleece jacket and hiking boots. He also had the same build as Schwartz.
The caller said the man had a black backpack. Schwartz’s wife confirmed he probably had a black JanSport backpack with him.
The caller didn’t see the man enter any vehicle, and authorities have not been able to confirm that the hitchhiker was Schwartz.
Anyone with further information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 928 771-3260.
