Faraway Ranch

The Faraway Ranch was homesteaded by Swedish immigrants - whose son-in-law was primarily responsible for the establishment of the beautiful Chiricahua National Monument.

Stafford Cabin

On the Faraway Ranch land. Was home of Ja Hu and his wife and 4 children - later turned into a guest house. I think Ja Hu was "Yahoo" in that the J in Swedish translated to a Y.

Fort Bowie

So much history here. Mainly involving Apache Indians - names like Cochise and Geronimo - and the cavalry. Great hike up there to go back in history - you can almost feel the presence. If you look closely you will see the American flag high on a pole - that was the center of the old fort.
