Not sure if the weather will hold for us, we left the mountains and higher elevations for this nice dispersed location for two nights.

We were rewarded with a nice sunset and good star gazing on the first night.

A little snow on the ground after an overnight storm but skies are clearing and it is looking like a promising day.

Well maybe a lot more sow. This little agave’s architecture is so highlighted with the snow – really beautiful.

Da-DAh, We made our destination before the snow cloud socked us in and created a memorable, not pleasantly, afternoon and evening. Lots of pages read in our book but we were so glad we had gotten out for a hike!

After that second night we woke up to bright skies and this water fall in the rocks behind our campsite. We are ready to take the back roads to our casita.

Our last visit to Cochise earlier thisĀ  year http://tealsky.com/2015/01/05/cochise-stronghold-national-forest/
