Chiricahua Mountains

We took an awesome drive today from our RV park to Portal, AZ via a road just to the east of the entrance to the Chiricahua National Monument. It was 23 miles of gravel/rock/dirt/narrow road, but oh my, was it scenic. At the summit of 7600 feet, the temperature was very cool as compared to the temperature at our RV park when we started out. There are live oak, cedar and some type of spruce trees. Many of the creeks have running water. As we were driving along slowly with the windows open, we heard a strange noise--it was a flock of wild turkeys! Jazz got to "go fishing" in one of the little creeks. There is boondocking type camping and developed campgrounds on the Portal, AZ side.
Jazz is better! She walked with me this morning farther than she has walked in many days. She is eating better and seems to have more energy and interest in what is going on around her.
