The fun part of having company is that it is a great excuse to abandon our routine and get out. Pat and Maureen being outdoor-type people we took them to the Chiricahua National Monument yesterday. We love that outing, and the scenery is surprising and unique.
The Chiricahua Mountains are the opposite boundary of the Sulphur Springs Valley, the Dragoon Mountains being the west side, where we live. You drive about 60 miles across the valley through a true western landscape and then pop into a canyon with these interesting rock formations.
We are at the back end of a cold front and it was cool and windy, but we still opted for a picnic at Massai Point.
