Another beautiful warm day, we decided to drive down the Apache Trail to check out some boon docking sites a couple of miles from Tortilla Flats. Before we left we turned on the air conditioning for the the dogs.
The drive was spectacular.
Tortilla Flats the last stage coach stop on the Apache Trail
Inside the Saloon/Restaurant the wall are covered with dollar bills.
Like the saddle bar stools
Skip made a friend
We drove three miles past Tortilla Flats, and saw several areas for camping, but they were very small and too rough to take our RV.
There was more beautiful scenery.
On the way back more vistas of Canyon Lake
That is the back of the Paddle Wheeler Dolly that does tours out of Canyon Lake Marina.
We were back at Lost Dutchman Park by noon, today was the first time we had used the air conditioner and we were a little anxious about the dogs.
Guess we shouldn’t have worried,Jake and Louie look right at home.
A 110lb Jake is just what you want on the dashboard, he has no shame either.
We are staying another day at the park and then we are heading down to Bisbee. We don’t know of any boon docking sites near Bisbee, so we are thinking of staying at the Escapees campground at Benson and driving down for a few hrs. if that is feasible.
My Husband Joe was sitting with me tonight while I was reading my blogs, including yours, he really enjoyed all your pictures because we've been there and related to the pub in Tortilla Flats. What breeds are your dogs? We loved the picture of Jake on the dashboard and wondering if he is aReplyDelete
We are looking forward to following your blog
If you need a boondocking spot near Bisbee, check out the Whitewater Draw wildlife area - where thousands of sandhill cranes winter. Camping is free for 3 nights, though it is a pretty bleak spot. It's off N Coffman Rd at 31.560733 -109.719033 about 24km NE of Bisbee. Check out the birds at least. The last mile or so can be a bit washboard at times!ReplyDelete
BJ Jake is an English Bulldog Rottwieler cross. Sophie and Louie are Boston Terriers.
Jake looks darn cute sitting up there on the dashboard!!..does he leave a 'dent'?ReplyDelete
