It is very hard to travel through the town of Salome without seeing mention of Dick Wick Hall, his famous frog, and the stick figure of the dancing Mrs."Salome" Pratt. Dick Wick Hall, co-founder of Salome, became famous for his writings, his imagination and his pet frog ~ and according to Mr. Hall ~ Mrs. Salome Pratt took off her shoes and danced across the hot sand that burned her feet. Thus, the town became "Salome ~ where she danced ~ Arizona." You can usually see her pictured on several of the buildings in town, right along with paintings of ~ "That Salome Frog" and a few saguaro cactus. So if you travel through, don't be shy about asking questions or taking pictures - happens all the time.
