Hiking in Cochise Stronghold 2010

Dragoon mountains, Cochise hideout.

George & Fran at the divide.

It was a beautiful day and after an off-road adventure on the way to the Dragoons we entered the East Stronghold Park Campground. There were a few people camping in this picturesque spot, some in tents(brrrrrr). After making use of the facilities we headed out on the trail. It's a steady climb up to the East-West divide(some 3 miles away) a vertical height gain of about 1,000 ft. There was some snow on the trail, but the biggest surprise was that "Half Moon Tank" a small crescent shaped dam was completely dry!
