Another hike out of a book I have. I was surprised to see a few old houses close by. I had also heard the campground was closed but there were people camping. It has a self pay station. Five bucks for hiking and a little more for camping.There is pretty good tree cover. They do have vaulted toilets. I was greeted there by two dogs barking up a storm at me. They would greet me the same way later on the trail. The Dragoons are a pretty nice area. With all the history it would be fun to explore for a longer period of time. As it was, my imagination ran wild the whole time. The trail was in pretty good shape and the temps were not as bad as anticipated. No jacket required. The trail starts part way up the Nature Trail. You can come back the other half of the Nature Trail on the way back to complete it also. Nice hike and scenery including four healthy White Tail Deer, I saw in total.
On the way home I stopped in Benson and ate at the Horseshoe Cafe & Bakery which is also in my book. I had the chiliburger and fries. It was tasty and the waitress (Dora-Sue) was nice. I brought Grace home an Apple Dumpling and am waiting on her response. I'm trying to stay away from the sweets. Like the chiliburger and fries were healthy :oops:. I did have a diet coke :roll: . All said, it was a good day! :D
