The destination was Cochise's Stronghold, an area in the Coronado National Forest just south of Dragoon. Our original plan was to drive to Tombstone, have breakfast and then drive up toward St. David. We planed on taking a shortcut on the Dragoon Ranch Road into the Dragoon Mountains. That did not work as the road is private and closed. So we hauled our gear up to Benson, over to the Dragoon exit and then down to the road that takes you into the Cochise Stronghold Campground. But, the journey proved to be the photo-opportunity as we stopped often to capture anything that looked interesting. We ate lunch at the campground and then returned home. We had a brand new photographer with us. His name is Bob and he did pretty dang good with a borrowed camera and some simple instructions. You will see his start below.
Ah, but Carol, you said this was a journey and you started us in the middle. Of course! Below you can enjoy the beginning of the trip.
That is all folks. It turned out to be a most fun day. We hope you enjoyed our journey as well.
