After three days in the Chiricahuas, I headed south on an unplanned jaunt to take in the beautiful weirdness of Bisbee. Arrived only to learn that I was a week late for the party (the annual stair climb event is the third weekend of October). I climbed them anyway. Much less crowded, I'm sure. This is a great way to explore the less-visited parts of town. It's really quite surprising just how many homes there are in that hollow. On the way back to my camper, I went "off trail" and grabbed another 35 steps up to the visitor's center at the mine. As I was packing it up, I learned I would be missing another big blast; the annual Halloween Dance. Guess I'm just happy here out-of-the-know.

A fun and interesting community. Not your typical tourist town. Enjoyed the trail while interacting with many locals.
