Here are some photos taken last year by my husband, Pat. By the way, I’m trying to come up with a Photo Challenge of my own for this year. Any ideas?
We had gone on a hike along the San Pedro River. These pictures were taken at the restored ranch house and a storage shed constructed from railroad ties. It is also habitat for the Sonoran Spotted Whiptail lizard.
Another place we like to ride mountain bikes is the Empire Ranch in Sonoita, AZ. The house and barns are being restored to preserve the history of ranch. The John Wayne movie “Red River” was filmed here, as well as many other westerns including the original “3:10 From Yuma”
We volunteered a couple of days at a ghost town called Fairbank, AZ. Fairbank was a town located between Tucson and Douglas and the closest train station for Tombstone, AZ. It was a major silver ore stamping station in the area.
The old “Post Office” building gutters needed repair to keep the rain water from running into the adobe walls. It was one of the projects we helped with.
That’s all for now.
