Road Trip in Cochise County | November 23, 2013
The rain may have altered some of our plans, but it definitely didn’t spoil today’s adventure! We successfully found 8 letterboxes and enjoyed more of Southern Arizona that we hadn’t seen before. However, we weren’t able to see as much as we wanted of places like Chiricahua National Monument due to rain, cold, and snow causing closed roads. But from what we saw, it looks amazing and we’re looking forward to going back and doing more hiking someday!
Every week I am more and more amazed by God’s creation all around. I love everything I’ve seen, and I keep hearing about more places that I need to visit! I’m certain He put in overtime when designing Arizona’s mountains and rock formations. I hope you enjoy the pictures of this adventure as much as I do!
Again, we only made brief stops for letterboxes. We could only take so much bitter cold at a time, so short drive-by boxes were perfect for today. It might have been windy, rainy, and cold, but at least the clouds were amazing!
If you go to Arizona and only drive on interstates, you are seriously missing out on the beauty of the back highways. I learned today that one of Cochise County’s distinguishing features is the tall yellow grass all around. It made for rich, warmer hues in contrast with the dark sky.

On our way home, we stopped at Texas Canyon again for a letterbox at the Westbound rest stop. It was even more cloudy than before. While we had enjoyed our interesting rainy road trip in Cochise County, we were ready for a warm night at home!
