By Heather / November 20, 2017

Today we just stayed around Camp Verde and had a bit of a downtime day. Went back to the Montezuma’s Castle as Rob wanted to buy a flute after listening to the flute player. The flute is the oldest know instrument and he’s always wanted to play something musical. There is a story around here […]

Day 11 – Tombstone to Willcox, AZ

By Heather / November 17, 2017

Tombstone to Willcox, AZ is one of the greatest birding areas in southeastern Arizona. Of course, that is only my opinion. Lots of hawks, ducks, and sandhill cranes dot the countryside as well as numerous passerines that winter here. After visiting the town of Tombstone for a look see we headed out and turned left on […]
