We had booked a ATV ride to Cochise Stronghold and today was the day we were going.On the way to meet the tour our car broke down in St. David.We were lucky to have one of the guys come and pick us up so we could still go.Anyway more about the car later.Here we are heading out. Along the way we went by and old mining town facade.
As we moved along we came across many unusual rock formations.
This is such an amazing area and you could drive the trail in a car.With all the rocks around you can see why Cochise liked this area. We continued on to Council Rocks,this is the land of legends. There are many pictographs made from 100’s of years ago.You can also see where the Indians used the rocks for grinding their seeds. The boulders have served as shelters for all those who passed this area.This is part of the Dragoon Mountains and where Cochise’s people could elude the military.Council Rocks may have been the area where Cochise made peace with General O.O.Howard in 1872.
At the end of the trail we had a nice lunch and had our group picture taken. A great time was had by all.
Back to the car situation. We had it towed to Benson and found out the bearings were gone. We had it fixed and now ready to go again.All in all we had a great day on our ride even if the car broke down.
