We visited Piedras Maracas Canyon within the Petroglyph National Monument outside Albuquerque, New Mexico with our friends from Birmingham, Keith and Beth Johns, on a brilliant cool winter day last month.
We took a detour to Bisbee, Arizona on our way to Tucson.
First, the drive off I-10 on Arizona 80 is pretty amazing and remote. Very few vehicles on the road and amazing scenery.
We stay at the Queen Mine RV Park which is convenient to downtown and has a nice view of the same.
We first visited Bisbee in December 2019 just a few days before Christmas. Again, we were headed towards Tucson. It was relatively quiet on our first visit, but this time there were lots of people walking around the streets, the bars and the cafes were full.
After a great lunch at Le Cornucopia, and since it was a really fine if brisk day, we decided to explore a bit on foot.
After a while walking around we encountered Cindy Atkins and her lovely dog, Stanley, out for a walk. Cindy asked if we'd like for her to show us some of her favorite spots and art and we immediately said that sounded like a great idea. And it was.
We're happy to have met Cindy and Stanley and hope to see them both in the future. Bisbee is a place you too should check out.
