Kartchner Caverns State Park, AZ (March 22 - 24th), 2011

Kartchner Caverns State Park southeast of Tucson really did have caves to visit.  However, we opted out because the price was a little steep for only half the tour of the caves. Or pay the full price twice to see the whole cave. Definitely was not worth it to us. So instead we took the 2 and one half mile Foothill Hiking trail around the caverns.  Very nice trail; perfect weather (low 70's) and Buddy was the leader of the pack.  The Visitor Center was unbelievable.  Told all about the caverns and how they were formed and found, what you could find in them.  Plus there was a hummingbird garden area not quite in bloom yet but beautiful plants that would be blooming this summer for sure. So many gorgeous desert plants surrounding the area and even a cafe and gift shop you will find there.  The campground was another fine one; large spacious; water and electric sites and great bathrooms.  We will definitely return to these fine campgrounds of Arizona.  Again we lucked out according to the campground host there, because we did not have reservations and we got in to camp.  Arizona school kids are on Spring break so the campgrounds were quite full around this part of the state.  Time to head on over to Tombstone, AZ.
