Welcome to the tamed wilderness that is Bonita Creek at the base of the Mogollon rim in Arizona.
Linda and I have a home here that we share with good friends and others who share my love of photography. It’s certainly a great place to unwind, relax, and only look forward to the next cool breeze.
Some of you may have noticed our lot is less…bushy? Almost two dozen trips to the brush pit with almost all of the manzanita and a lot of the scrub oak from our lot took a month or so. But, we love the space as much as the safer feeling if a fire rolled through. If you have a lot in the forest consider your responsibility to your own home and others and clear your lot to make it safe.
Our home has metal blinds and a fire extinguisher in EVERY room. We are on our own in the country…either be prepared to put out your own fire or watch your home burn to the ground.
Linda found a wonderfully detailed document explaining the construction of the control road and other roads and trails in our ‘hood’. 190+ pages of fun info. Check it out.
Here is a camera image that is updated every 15 minutes during the day. On October 28th, 2018 we updated the camera to be far clearer and more efficient. Click here to see a larger version.
