~ Crossing Guard, Arizona Style ~
I'd never hiked the east face of the Chiricahuas until this past Saturday. I met a friend at 5:00 a.m. at the Triple T Truck Stop on Interstate 10, and we drove east for two hours to the New Mexico line. From there we drove south 1/2 hour on Route 80 until we came to the road to Portal, Arizona. (Right you are; we had to drive west back into Arizona.)
Portal, Arizona isn't very big. Maybe 60 people live there, and not all at once. We stopped downtown to take a photo of the Post Office.
In the spring and summer, this place is a mecca for birders, and I wanted to scout it out. I'll be back again in the spring.
