Anza Trail

There is an old trail leading from what was the Presidio at Tubac, Az south to the mission of Tumacacori ,which is only a few miles away. The garrison of soldiers, who lived in the Presidio, rode down the trail on a regular basis, protecting the mission from the Apache Indians who lived in the mountains to the east.

On a beautiful morning , Tom and I hiked down the trail.
 Juan Bautista de Anza  was a Spanish Explorer and early Governor of Northern Mexico. he lead a group of settlers, in 1774, from Tubac, Az on the the first overland expedition to San Francisco Bay.
