Chiracahuas September 2011

We decided to get away from the Tucson heat and visit the southeast corner of Arizona where the Chiracahua mountains reside. This part of Arizona is at a much higher elevation than Tucson and temperatures during the day are about 20 degrees cooler than what you would normally find in Tucson. The original purpose of the trip was to go do a wine tasting at the Lawrence Dunham vineyard but everything was so lush and green that we decided to return the following weekend and stayed at the Sunglow Ranch, a guest ranch and mountain retreat. The ranch and the surrounding countryside was spectacular and we got a lot of hiking done. We came back to Tucson truly refreshed.
