    From 10/25-11/2 road trip across Arizona's southern regions (I-8 and 10) from California to New Mexico. Most visitor centers and indoor museums were closed. It was challenging with tours at 25% capacity Oh well! Was upset not to tour Bisbee mine or Karchner cave, BUT we found other tours - moved on. That said have to comment about a creepy shooting area north of Yuma listed as a wildlife refuge near Buckeye. with no warning about hunters shooting around us. That was weird. I have a lot of great photos of natural beauty but I am only sharing a few man made attractions from our trip that included hwys 85, 80, 90, 87, 387, 83, 90, 61....

    Pics: Fairbank ghost town on hwy 82 and a store entrance Hermitage in Bisbee off of hwy 80.

      Northern AZ seemed to be open. I liked eating inside restaurants.

      Sounds like you had fun exploring Mary, but next time you are near Yuma bring a neon bright orange coat lol! Happy travels, look forward to more pix

      Some “rules” don’t apply in certain states. Be careful! Yes, a lot of tourist attractions are closed, but that’s when you head out and discover new things, as you did. I guarantee your trip was more meaningful, than following guides around. Crystal Caves was closed, ( yes, you need a guide) but heck. We will go next year..

      Fort - YES, we ate inside restaurants when they had enough room to close tables and give space. Not all though and some chose to do only takeout. That's frustrating but totally understandable. Originally we planned to do North AZ, glad we didn't as it snowed last week. I really loved our trip and have a new love for Arizona Hwys magazine!!

      Thank you Jenni - something was in "shooting season" at that refuge. We never figured it out and we didn't see any wildlife there either LOL. Yuma has a great old downtown.

      Eileen, true - doesn't seem to be any set rules, and we were discouraged and mad at ourselves for not calling and reserving tours at the cave and mine, but we found another cave (Collosal near Tucson) and mine (Good Enough in Tombstone) and enjoyed. I would encourage anyone travelling to call ahead, don't rely on website info since they aren't updating websites. Hey, tourism is wanted and we felt the attitude was "come spend your money on our terms, we'll be closed but thanks for stopping by". LOL

      Thanks for the AZ loves - dav2no1, AnythingObscure, Kevin, Phil and Thomas!

      Cool place I like old cemeteries use to dig outside of the old ones (not deep) and would find bottles, vases and other things that the grounds keeper would throw away it is not stealing but saving IMO same with metal detecting

      Thank you Bill - This was a very cool place. I think many people dug around this cemetary and town since it became a ghost town in 1972. Now BLM manages Fairbank. Someone lives in an RV. It was such a cool place to wander around.

      Of course it’s not stealing Bill. If something is discarded years ago and left o the elements, (buried), it is definitely “saving”.
    8. valentino97 valentino97, 4 months ago
      Ha ha! Beware BLM though. They would love to fine you.
