A Picnic Among The Bouldersby Jim Gressinger on May. 15, 2013, under Best Southern Arizona Picnic Areas, Native American Culture, Old West, Scenic Back Roads, Southern Arizona Art, Southern Arizona Attractions, Southern Arizona History & Culture, Things To Do In Cochise County
One of the features on Southern Arizona Guide is The 7 Best Picnic Areas In Southern Arizona. Last Sunday, we “discovered” yet another one near the top of Carr Canyon. And yesterday we enjoyed an old favorite among the boulders of Texas Canyon.
One reason this is a favorite picnic spot is the Amerind is here. Not only can we picnic among the boulders, we can also visit both the museum & art gallery. The collections of American Indian artifacts & western art are excellent. This is a particularly good place to bring school age children.
I know a lot of Tucson locals who say they have never been to the Amerind because it’s just too far for a day trip. Just FYI: from downtown Tucson, it took us 57 minute to arrive here.
