I passed through the area hundreds of time over the last couple of decades. When I was ready to settle into home ownership Kingman was the first town that came to mind.
Mohave County has a warm, sunny climate that favors outdoor activity at all times of the year, with low humidity and perpetual sunny skies. This virtually smog-free, dry and hot climate creates a very desirable environment for the residents of the area.
My desk is strategically place by a window, where each morning I can watch the sun come up over the mountains. I do not live in one of the best neighborhoods, my home is modest, but I feel privileged to have this million-dollar Cerbat Mountain range and Hualapai Mountains which are a mountain range near Kingman, Arizona in Mohave County. "Hualapai" means "People of the tall Pines" in the Hualapai language.
Mohave County, Arizona, is home to a total of 293 mountain summits and peaks it will most likely take me the rest of my life to map them all, but I am up for the challenge.
Before I retire each evening, I walk out into the west side of my home where I can see another mountain where the sun sets. I have not learned the names of the mountains yet, but I do know no matter which direction I look there is mountain scenery.
When darkness falls, the lights of Stockton Hill light up the base of the mountain and it looks like Christmas every night of the year.
