Fort Apache, Arizona
Hubby and I stopped by Fort Apache again Saturday. This is our third visit to the fort and it always seems eerie to me...the wind whistling through the cottonwoods, leaves swirling...lots of spirits there. Anyway, we got a good look at some of the cabins there and saw the ruins of the barracks. If you ever have a chance, DO stop by and visit the fort. You will need to check in at the museum and pay a small fee. But, then you'll get a map of the fort, although each cabin is labeled and you can read about its history. I was interested to read that the commanding officer's house was actually larger than General Crook's. And, did you know that the fort was never attacked? Interesting, eh? Fort Apache is down from Show Low and Lakeview and up the road from Globe, Arizona.
