[Source: YumaSun.com] – – The January edition of Arizona Highways will be a special read for local folks, not just because the magazine will be debuting a new look, but because a cherished Yuma landmark will be in the spotlight. That edition of the popular magazine will be dedicated to the “Top 25 Weekend Getaways” in Arizona. Local readers will be pleased to see that No. 14 is the Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park.
Officials at the Yuma park said the honor comes as pleasant surprise. “It’s always an honor to be mentioned in Arizona Highways,” said Jerry Emert, park manager at the Quartermaster Depot. “Not to short the recognition that the Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park gets, but they always seem to be the big draw in town for state parks. We’re quite pleased to hear that we’re finally getting a little recognition.” [Note: to read the full article click here.]
