Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Cottonwood, AZ
After hiking up to the Devil’s Bridge near Sedona, AZ, I headed over to Cottonwood, AZ and found a spot to pitch my tent for the night at Dead Horse Ranch State Park, just a short distance from town. I was told that the spot that I had chosen was often frequented by Quail and Roadrunners coming out of the wash near that tent site. No one mentioned Coyotes! (More on that in the next post.)
After I finished setting up the tent I took the short drive to the old mining town of Jerome. Not far (about 6 miles) but straight uphill (over a thousand foot climb at mountain grades).
More photos and information to follow when I have WiFi access.
