Fires-Apache Sitgreaves National Forest
My wife and I have enjoyed camping in Eastern Arizona ever since we moved to Las Cruces in 1998. We've camped at Cave Creek, West Turkey Creek,Pinery Canyon and the National Monument in the Chiricahuas. In the Apache- Sitgreaves we've camped at KP Cienega twice and down on the Blue River as well. I've fished in KP Creek, Akers Lake, Fish Creek, Bear Creek, Grant Creek, Lanphier Creek, Blue River and even tried Mamie Creek that runs off of Escudilla Mountain.To watch this beautiful area burning is just heart breaking, I can't imagine what the people who live in the mountain communities must be feeling.Photos are from top: KP Cienega,Bear Wallow Wilderness, Upper Fish Creek and KP Creek.
