We drove then some forty miles to the Chiricahua National Monument north of our current base of Willcox, Arizona. The weather at the Monument was cooler than in town, but tolerable, due to the fact that Lynnie loaned me one of her jackets and she donned her winter parka. It was in the forties, so cold for her. She had suggested that I take my rain jacket with, but due to my superior ability at forecasting everything, I didn't. Imagine that, a guy who won't listen! New for me too. ;0)
We checked in at the visitor center and then headed on an eight mile drive to Massai Point
Enroute back, the weather got nasty, with rain and wind and even a bit of snow. This is actually the only nasty weather we've had since our sojourn in Las Vegas. We plan on heading out in the morning to New Mexico, after over a month in the remarkable state of Arizona. What surprised me most about this state, is the number of mountain ranges here. It seems we're never out of site of the mountainous beauty. Sunshine yes, but much, much more.
