Road Trip: From Slaughter Ranch To Chiricahua Nat’l Monument To Duncan!by Jim Gressinger on Apr. 15, 2012, under Best Southern Arizona Picnic Areas, Exceptional Museums, Hiking, Southern Arizona Lodging, Southern Arizona Wildlife
Yesterday, Ms. Karen took this photo of a coatimundi at Bonita Canyon in the Chiricahua National Monument. Please share this photo with other coati lovers.
The Monument is magnificent. Will bring back more pictures.
On Friday, we visited the Slaughter Ranch in San Bernardino Valley 600 feet from the International border and almost in New Mexico. A beautifully restored ranch house now a museum and a fantastic place for a picnic aside the lake.
Also visited the old Gadsden Hotel in Douglas. Once magnificent, now shamefully shabby.
Last night we stayed at the historic Simpson Hotel B&B in Duncan. Deborah, the owner/innkeeper has lovingly restored this old hotel. She’s a terrific host. Great place to stay. Will report more on this historic area manana.
This morning we are off to explore Clifton, AZ, then will stop at Roper Lake State Park on the way back to Tucson this PM.
