Profile of Cochise in the Chiricahua Mountains

The Apache Chiriachua Indians are legendary in American history. One of their great leaders was Cochise. The U.S. Army chased him and his men for several years. He eventually surrendered and died on a reservation.

 

Yet his spirit lives on in the land he loved. Some say his profile is seen in this mountain in the distance. (View in large and you can even see the single pine tree that is his eyelash!)
