Patagonia and Tubac

It’s good to be home. After a day of recuperation and resting from our adventure of the last few weeks we were ready to explore a little more locally.

Home Sweet Home

Patagonia Lake State Park is an oasis in the rolling hills of the southeastern Arizona desert. This is a man-made lake, with a campground, a sandy beach, hiking trails, and a marina. It is designated as an Important Birding Area by the Audubon Society. We could hear many birds chirping in the trees while we were there. The campground was busy and there were families playing in the water, people were boating and fishing.

After exploring the park we went over to visit the little town of Tubac. This is a unique little village established in 1752 as a Spanish Fort and is known as the place “Where Art & History Meet.”  Now the town is an “artsy” village. The streets are lined with artist studios, galleries, gift shops, and restaurants. There are a lot of very creative people here.

The fort became Arizona’s very first state park.
