OUR FT. BOWIE GET-A-WAY

100_4780  100_4782

We made our way into SE Arizona, through Wilcox and on to Ft. Bowie (Named for Jim Bowie).

0828140731

We found a nice camp site at a BLM free camp site…

0827141848a

Got set up before sundown.   The area is all open range, so, we had a few 100 head of cattle as neighbors, as well as a few “Arizona wild pigs”, the Javelina.

The rock formations at our camp site were breathtaking.

We did finish setting up before sundown. During the night we had ourselves a front row seat of the brightest stars we ever saw, with more than a few “shooting stars” thrown in for our viewing pleasure.


0828140557a

The next morning we witnessed a spectacular sun-rise, as it glistened off the rocks….


0828140723

… we went for a nice hike.

0828140722a

The flora is out in force this time of the year.


100_4820  100_4821

Between the camp site and Bowie we found miles and miles of almond, pecan, and walnut trees.

As we passed through Bowie, a town of about 400, we found this house designed to look like a TP.

Back in Wilcox, a town around 3,500 people, but noted for the cowboy movie star, Rex Allen, and APPLES! Lots and lots of apples.

We stopped by for a look at “Apple Annie's, lots of people were picking. Well, maybe one day, but this day we just bought an apple pie, READY MADE –YUM!
