Sacred Mountain Trading Post first came to the nation’s attention in the iconic road-trip movie, ‘Easy Rider,’ released in 1969. It’s starring role was brief; just a stop for the stars to fill up their motorcycles with gas at the old trading post on Highway 89, just 22 miles north of Flagstaff. Now it has gone from Trading Post to residence, but the name is still there.
It does have a special meaning for our family, however. Daughter Jessica was born on the highway here. (Her birth certificate says: Delivered in car, by mother; long story, safe delivery).
Painting was juried into 2014 Arizona State Fair.
