We live in Cochise County - a county that is rich in history -
Tales of the silver mines of Tombstone - 'the town too tough to die' - where the Earps, Doc Holliday and the Clantons shot-it-out at the OK Corral; and the days when the Butterfield Stagecoach ran over rough and dangerous territory;

The proud Apaches, led by Cochise and Geronimo, who were forced to give up their homeland, after fighting to keep the settlers away; and the famed Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th & 10th Cavalry, who were charged with protecting those pioneers.
We are fascinated by the endless possibilities that the Southwest has to offer - it's breathtaking scenery; beautiful birds and wildlife; history of the wild-wild-west; rock and mineral specimens; fossils and relics.
As much of our spare time as possible is spent, off the beaten path, in the mountains
of southern Arizona and New Mexico. We have a 4-wheel drive pick-up truck,
a 28 ft. Motor Home, a tow-behind Jeep, and an ATV quadrunner. We love to spend every minute exploring dirt trails whether in our pick-up, Jeep or ATV. Since we are both now retired, we are enjoying expanding our off-road exploring and rockhounding exploits.
