Profile of Cochise in the Chiricahua Mountains

Prev Next

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!)

    Yes, I can see why you would choose your one-season landscape, Ken. Very strong & beautiful. Your info on Cochise had me googling as have a vague recollection of a movie from way back that might have had Burt Lancaster playing Cochise but couldn't find it. Wikipedia says he was the last indian chief to die free & unconquered but, hey, it wouldn't be the first time they've sent out incorrect info :))
    Nature has carved out a very defined profile there. Wonderful shot!
    Thanks for your visit. Actually I'd prefer to take 3 seasons. They can keep winter :)
    Have a good night, Ken.
