Below is a plaque that may be hard to read.  Just below is the text.  Below that is the photo of the plaque along with photos of the spectacular surrounding area.

“FOUR MILES SOUTHEAST, AT COUNCIL ROCKS, APACHE PEACE TREATY WITH COCHISE WAS RATIFIED IN 1872.   NEAR DRAGOON SPRINGS, ON OCTOBER 12, 1872, GENERAL O.O. HOWARD AND COCHISE, CHIEF OF THE CHIRACAHUA APACHE INDIANS, RATIFIED A PEACE TREATY ENDING YEARS OF WARFARE BETWEEN THE TRIBE AND THE WHITE SETTLERS.  COCHISE’S STRONGHOLD WAS HIDDEN DEEP IN THE DRAGOON MOUNTAINS BEYOND.

ARIZONA DEVELOPMENT BOARD     A.H.D.     1962″

An important and beautiful place between Tucson and Willcox. The plaque says all that needs to be said.

    Diane and John, I’m finally back in Green Valley after my travels in CA and Costa Rica which began with a visit with you in PHX on Jan. 3. How fun it is to be able to follow your inspirational adventure through your words, photos, and videos. I sure wish I’d been here to connect with you in Tucson and am looking forward to more episodes. Love and hugs, Marty
