Let’s Get to the Points

Many travelers pass through this Central Arizona town when they’re on their way to somewhere else — and that’s where they’ll see these oversize spurs, a nod to the town’s Western heritage. Like many places in Arizona, this one is named for an early prospector. Will that clue spur a correct guess?

School’s Out

Most students get a week or two off for spring break this month, but at this Southeastern Arizona institution, school has been out for more than three-quarters of a century. It’s located in a copper boomtown, now a ghost town, that’s named for an Irish miner who staked a claim there.

Who Nose?

No, this large-nosed sculpture isn’t on Easter Island — it’s in a small town along the Arizona stretch of a famous highway. The town shares its name with a bright star and a Eurodance band from the 1990s. And if you’ve got a nose for details, the mountain range in the distance might help you identify it.
