After a lunch break at the Coronado National Monument and a winding accent up Montezuma Pass Road, a few of us hiked to the summit of Coronado Peak. The panoramic view from the top is nothing short of stunning. To the east: New Mexico, the San Bernardino Valley and San Pedro River Valley—part of the route Francisco Vásquez de Coronado traveled in 1540. To the south: Sonora, Mexico, the Cerro Colorado and the massive Cananea Copper Mine. To the west: La Bola, San Rafael Ranch ant the Patagonia Mountains. After soaking in the grand view, the convoy continued on to our final stop of the day—camp at Parker Canyon Lake.
