We have truly enjoyed our stay in the Tucson, Arizona area but it was starting to get a wee bit hot. So we decided to strike out and find what we could find.
We had heard about a elegant Trogon being spotted in the Patagonia, Arizona area and decided to head there. We stopped by the state park where the report originated and found that no one had reported seeing it for several days. As the park campground was full we decided to come on over to Patagonia and check out this city. It is a charming little town with a very nice main street which is no longer the highway through town. It is very conveniently located though. A photo of a portion of the main street is below.
Below is a renovated Railway station from back when the town was served by a railroad. This is no longer the case but they’ve done a great job of renovating the depot.
Below are a few photos of Patagonia Lake where the state park is located and the campground. as you can see fishing is allowed on the lake.
Below are two images taken from an overlook on top of one of the higher portions of the road on the way to Patagonia. The drive is designated as one of Arizona’s scenic byway’s and we believe it is justified.
Below are two images of examples of some of the amazing rock formations one will encounter during the drive.
That is all for today!
