|Out in the wilds of the Ironwood National Forest in Pima County, Arizona
is the Koht Kohl Hill. I parked my car at the ARSCO mine. The modern area known as
Silverbell seems to have destroyed the remnants of the town by the same name.
Somewhere in the Aguirre Valley lies
the last Spanish Mission built in Arizona (Mission of Santa Ana del Chiquiburitac).
Silverbell lies a good 15 miles west of Marana which is a
sprawling suburb on the northwest side of Tucson.
I did not expect to see it today, but rather I wanted to see how far and fast
I could take the terrain. I only made it to the Koht Kohl Hill.
I was happy to have made it that far given the terrain.
It was hill after hill like waves in the sea with the next one worse than the previous one.
When it was flat, it alternated between rocky and sandy soil.

At least the locals that I wanted to see: A Striped tail scorpion.
