Civil War Battlefield of the West: Picacho Peak, Arizona

Picacho Peak at Sunset: Mike in Tucson, Mortgage Lender

~ Stormy Sunset at Picacho Peak ~

I'll bet you didn't know (until you stumbled across this little blog) that Tucson in 1862 was the western capital of the Confederate Arizona Territory.  It was.  Google it.

This peak, about 40 minutes northwest of Tucson (along Interstate 10) marks the site of the westerlymost battle of the Civil War.  It's called Picacho Peak, and I've stood on the very top of that granite outcropping you see there, snapping photos for you, and just enjoying the view.

Here's some of what you'll see on your way to the top:

On the way to the top: Mike in Tucson, Mortgage Lender

Can't you imagine the real life drama that unfolded down there, as the Confederate pickets defeated the Union Cavalry?  This was the era when Cochise led the Apaches.  It really was the Wild West!
