2021 - Trip Report - Out and About South of Tucson, Arizona

Out and About South of Tucson, Arizona

By Julie Smith

Greetings Everyone! MisterBill and I corralled the old RV down in the Sierra Vista area of Arizona for the month of July 2021. Such a beautiful area of the Southwest (even in July!).

With an elevation of around 4,000 feet, afternoon monsoon rains, and a variety of old west terrain/towns to explore, we found plenty of fun things to do without being in extreme heat which surprised us this time of year. Tombstone, Patagonia, and Bisbee are just a few of the interesting spots to visit. On the National Day of the Cowboy we drove over to nearby Sonoita, Arizona to visit the historic Empire Ranch. It was established in the 1870’s and has been going strong to this day. It’s a huge ranch with interesting history and nice folks to show you around – hope y’all get to visit sometime. For more information check out their great website:
