This morning we were up and having breakfast at 9 o'clock in preparation for a day visiting Tombstone, Arizona. At 10 we were on our way.
Heading straight south on hwy 83 over the Rincon Mountains toward the Grasslands.It was only a 36 minute drive. Since the Cienegas National Conservation Area (Grasslands) is on the way to Tombstone, I wanted to show Nick where I stay each year in April for the horse competition. Also, the beautiful mountains surrounding the area.
|Drove through Empire Creek|
|Santa Rita Mountains to the west|
|Mustang Mountains to the southeast|
|Whetstone Mountains to the east|
Had a problem getting back to the highway.
We then headed on to Sonita, about two miles down hwy 83 and turned at hwy 82 for the 40 minute drive to Tombstone.

After Boot Hill, we went on into Tombstone and walked main street.
