The San Pedro River Basin is renowned for its scenic beauty and diversity of plant and animal life, and spring is a wonderful time to see migrant and breeding birds. We will venture into the riparian corridor along the San Pedro River as well as Ramsey Canyon, "hummingbird capital of the U.S.," located in the nearby Huachuca Mountains. We will also visit museums in Bisbee and explore the Fort Huachuca Museum, which highlights the role of military intelligence within the U.S. Then, we offer a glimpse of the true old west in Tombstone with a private tour of the historic courthouse.
