February 11: Safford, AZ



I will admit I was less than thrilled with staying at Roper Lake State Park but, after today, I am so glad we did. We took a day trip to Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area. It is among - if not the - most beautiful places I've ever experienced.


We spent several hours touring in the car and hiking on trails, walking down to the Gila River and Bonita Creek. We talked to a couple individuals who have been camping in the paradise that is Gila Box. Glen and I are currently considering cancelling our reservations for Lost Dutchman State Park near Phoenix, in favor of spending Sunday and Monday at Gila Box instead. Fingers crossed.


Rather than boring you with any more words, I will simply share a dozen or so of the many pics I took today.
