    Like you, I like the forts and history of the west. This was for sure one of those outposts with with a lot of adventure and danger. You did a great job of presenting the area.

    Wow, great page. I visited Sierra Vista once, and didn't even see enough to make a VT page... I never realized there was so much to do in the area!

    Interesting tips on your (current) home town and some of the nearby hiking trails such as Ramsey Canyon and Carr Canyon. I've never been to that part of Arizona, but it looks really nice.
