Cochise Stronghold from a familiar place

After the desert we wanted a calm place to relax.

December 15th to the 18th – still hoping to catch up.

Gila Box! Calm and beautiful.

This place allowed us to head to check out another potential campground. Cochise Stronghold. We found the campground tight even for our little trailer – we only had the truck this time.

Where can these stairs lead?

A trailhead no doubt.

We found these rocks…

That one looked like an owl, so we got closer.

Still looks like an owl.

There are beautiful and long trails from this campground. We may camp here sometime, though I doubt any availability or desire during peak season.

We returned to Gila Box and the temperatures lowered.

What do you see in the above photo?

That UV flashlight I bought came in handy!

As the temperature dropped we left and headed South and West…

    • It was very strange Doug. I’d played with them when I was a child…it’s not that hard and they are mostly not deadly…but they sting a LOT! We bought the UV flashlight and it was lots of fun looking for things that light up under UV.
