Cochise County, Arizona – March 2022 – Piney Canyon

The road from Chiracahua to Cave Creek goes up through the mountains along Piney Caney. It is a fabulous 24 mile gravel drive, peaking out over 6000′ in elevation.

With Arizona’s perpetual clear skies you often see the moon in the middle of the day.

The start of the road runs through some flatlands.

One of the last things I was expecting to see nearing the top was an E-bike. Note a bit of left over snow on the bank (and the aforementioned moon).

As you start down the east side you get impressive views of the mountains in the distance, but it does require focus to get down safely.

The appropriately named Cave Creek Park is located in the valley near the town of Portal.
