Friday afternoon, my friend Michelle and I hiked just a bit in Cochise Stronghold in the Coronado National Forest. We only had time to hike for about an hour. After we finished, we were heading into Willcox for dinner. We saw this sunset in the rear view mirror.
The photo was taken as we headed east on Ironwood Road. I snapped it with my cell phone camera, so it doesn’t do it justice. Next time I’ll make sure my camera is charged properly!
This place is called Cochise Stronghold because the great Apache leader, Cochise, used to hide out among the gigantic boulders. Once you get on the trail, you can imagine how he could have found some great places to hide!
The trail is in Cochise County, about 90 minutes from Tucson. It’s a great hike, and if you time it right, you might get to witness a great sunset like we did!
