Montezuma Pass, Arizona

This is our "Guard Dog" in the morning. She can sleep day and night!
From Drop Box
Montezuma Pass is in the Coronado National Memorial Park. In 1540 Francisco Coronado was sent to find the 7 City's of Gold. The mission was a failure but the South Western area was then known to the world.

To walk in Montezuma's footsteps and see his views had to be breathtaking! I love that cross.
