Old Ranches, Dogs and Butterflies of Southern Arizona

Recommended Posts

Last weekend we took another trip down near the border (just south of Patagonia) to do some more exploring. We found lots of lush green scenery, running water, butterflies and cool old ranches. We spent some time on Guajalote Flats (which we'd done before), then took a few new roads. Spectacular! Here's a few photos from the trip.

Does this look like the desert to you?

Here's a detailed trip report with maps, photos, video, GPS coordinates, etc. for a portion of the above trip. It's what I call Paloma Road, which is actually a combination of four forest roads and leads to the Golden Rose Camp and Javelina Well ruins: http://www.experience-az.com/adventures/4wd/paloma/paloma.html
