Size:  2.91 MB The first pic is our son when he was 16 climbing through a natural tunnel in Havasupai Canyon. #2 & 3 is the east entrance to Cochise Stronghold in the Dragoon Mountains about 10 minutes from our ranch. The greatest Apache chief, Cochise, is buried within sight of this peak. There are several nice cold springs in oak filled canyons here. #4 is a look across the Sulphur Springs Valley from our ranch towards the Chiricahua Mountains. #5 is a look towards the Dragoon Mountains @ sunset from our ranch. More pix to follow.

Size:  2.48 MB#6 is a graveyard on our property. I have no idea who or what is buried there, I found it when building a shooting range - the old timer who tended it is gone to the other side. #7 is Mrs. Injunbro showing how matates were used to grind corn near "Sulphur Spring" an alkali spring & the headquarters for the Chiricahua Reservation also a stage coach station. I usually let her use a modern grinder nowdays) #8 is the site of the stage stop @ Sulphur Spring. #9 is the inside of our cabin & proof I really did get Mrs. Injunbro's 15 ton piano moved & lived to tell it (barely).#10 is gun parts & a strongbox lock w/ a bullet hole in it (found on our place & very close to where the Willcox, AZ train robbery occurred).

    Dog gone it Injunbro you've got to stop this madness, and please don't torture us with more boring photographs.
    We just can't take this any more.

    You're making AZ look like a pretty nice place to live, and it can't be.
    We all know it's a barren, intollerably hot wasteland, where only those ready to die want to go.
    In the high heat a body dehydrates and turn to dust quicker, and the bones bleach stone white in only a few short months.

    AZ is for the brave, the strong, and those wanting to live the life of a hermit, and can't survive the bone chilling cold and terrible snows of Montana.
    AZ has rattlesnakes, scorpions and lizards, that'll bite you, or eat you if given the opportunity.
    There are Armadillos and wild hogs, and all sorts of things that make scarry noises at night.
    AZ is suited only to the redskins that have learned to live off the land, and to shoot arrows and lever action rifles, with the skill of a well trained soldier.

    Now that's what we've been told for all these years. You're only spoiling us with beautiful views and stories of places with real American history.

    IT JUST CAN'T be.
    You're talking about Arizona, not the fertile valleys of Northern California.

    GC, you're right, it really sucks to have to live here & no more Kaliforrnicators, Sheekogoans nor Detrotters are allowed. You forgot to mention the mountain lions who roam the valleys @ night, the coyotes that chow down on poodles & the black bears who haunt the mountains seeking tasty victims. Ain't seen no armadillos since my last trip to Texas but bet they'd make good chili. Don't knock them bows & arrows until you try them (don't need no silencer) & lever-actions work pretty good when raiding & burning caravans of covered wagons or motorhomes. Just might find room to let a forum family or 2 visit though if they ain't too citified & wimpy.

    Injunbro,
    I noticed the Mrs has that of hers pan wrapped in plastic, so she doesn't get any blood splashed on it. She surely doesn't want to ruin the dinner.
    And I left out the Mountain lions, cause I don't want to scare any californicators away.

    VERY cool pics, Injunbro! Thanks for sharing them!

    I'm afraid when Mrs. Doc goes to Texas/New Mexico/Arizona with me later this year (if we can get away on vacation, hopefully), we won't wanna come back to those green hills (and HUMIDITY!) of Kain-Tuck-EE.....

    Really? A frying pan? I would have guessed the weapon of choice would be the classic rolling pin.

    Decades from today, after the ruins of the stage station and all the 19th century desert artifacts have been claimed by the never-resting desert and turned to dust, old folks will still remember and tell of the legend to their grandchildren.

    A great oral tradition will live on with the telling of how a great Jeep wrangling, but over-married Chief, scarred by many battles with cast-iron cookware, and slag splatter from hot steel and anvil work, still managed to, by his lonesome, carry a 15 ton piano over the Dragon Mountains to please and honor his bride (and avoid further cast-iron wrath).

    Iggy, you must have heard the legend, can we get a story 'bout this fella?

    Mike
