Chiricahua – Day 1

On our first full day at the Chiricahua National Monument deep in Apache Indian Country in remote Southeastern Arizona, Mary and I took a delightful 3+ mile walk. Our campground is at elevation 5,400 feet and the high temperature only reached 58 degrees. We bundled ourselves up in warm clothing for our leisurely 3 hour walk. First we visited the visitors center and then walked to the Faraway Ranch…so named by past owner Lillian Riggs because it was so “Gosh Darn Far Away From Anything!”

Simply Amazing!!!

We arrived yesterday afternoon at Chiricahua National Monument deep in Apache Indian Country in remote Southeastern Arizona, 40 miles away from the nearest town of Willcox, Arizona. Despite the fact that our campground is located in a mountainous canyon, by using my Wilson Cellphone Amplifier System, we are able to get a cell phone as well as an Internet signal. Simply amazing!!!
