Chiricahua & Southeast AZ Drive

November 2 - November 3

Mark your calendars now for two days of exploration in SE Arizona.  Here is what we have planned:

Leave Tucson the morning of November 2 – at 7:45 AM from Valero at Oracle and Golder Ranch or at 8:45 AM from the TTT Service Station on Craycroft and I10 Exit 268 (either pack a picnic lunch or buy a sandwich at Subway in Willcox).  

From Willcox we will drive to the Chiricahua National Monument, travel to the top to view the beautiful rock formations, have a picnic lunch at the park and either spend an hour on a short 1-1.5 mile hiking trail or (for those who find this too difficult) visit historic Faraway Ranch (fairly level ground).

We will end day one in Willcox with a meal at the Double S Steak House and stay overnight at the Holiday Inn Express where we are holding 10 rooms at a group rate of $100.61 (including tax).  We have a Party Room there, so bring your libations and a simple snack to share for a fun social evening.  We will use the Party Room before and after dinner (restaurant does not have a liquor license).  To make your early reservations, call Holiday Inn Express at 520-384-3333 and ask for the special rate for Tucson Miata Club.

On Saturday morning we will drive a short distance to Cochise and tour the historic Cochise Hotel and grounds.  It has an old-fashioned casino (not operating) where the owner promises to provide a tour of the grounds and teach us the old gambling game of Pharo ($5 per person).  He will even show you the apartment where he claims Big Nose Kate (of Tombstone fame) stayed.

From there we will proceed to Tombstone where you will be on your own to find lunch, drive about to see the town and regather to drive a good Miata road to Sierra Vista and head northwest back to our homes.

Sign up early.  We will be sending out more details the week of October 17.
