There are many smaller towns, in and around those featured, including Cochise, Sunizona, Sunsites, Pearce, St. David, and Dragoon, too name a few. All are unique and interesting to visit. For simplicity's sake, we would include these towns on the nearest featured town page. In this case, the Benson page. The Chiricahua National Monument and Fort Bowie are on the Willcox page.

From Tucson, the drive east to Benson down through the San Pedro River Valley, and through Texas Canyon is beautiful and diverse. It is easy to picture the Spanish Explorers coming up the San Pedro River Valley. As one drives from Willcox, south to the Chiricahua Mountains, you can imagine Geronimo and Cochise climbing and riding among these beautiful formations. Geronimo was a leader of the Chiricahua Apaches, and he was born near Turkey Creek. Jonny Ringo, from Tombstone, was shot in Turkey Creek Canyon. As you cross Turkey Creek, and head west toward the Dragoon Mountains, you can see Cochise's Stronghold near Sunsites, AZ.

As you look out into the distance in Tombstone, it is easy to image that Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the Clanton Gang, saw the same American Southwest beauty, much as it appears today.

We will be adding more information, photos, and videos to this site as we ourselves explore the towns of Tombstone, Bisbee, Sierra Vista, and Douglas, and even some of Cochise County's Ghost Towns. Our hope is to share the endless beauty and places of interest in Southeastern Arizona's Historic Cochise County, on this site. Explore Cochise calls this area "The Land of Legends" (fun flash presentation). That is a great observation. The Legends included, Wyatt Earp, Cochise, Geronimo, Jimmy "Santiago" McKinn, John Slaughter, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, Pancho Villa, Coronado, Rex Allen, the Buffalo Soldiers, and many more. Be sure to view our many pictures of Cochise County above.
