We couldn't have picked a prettier time to be there as the flowers were just beginning to bloom. The Mexican Gold Poppies flowed down the mountain valleys like liquid sunshine.
The RV campground sat at the base of a smallish red mountain, and by the second day I let the three older girls loose on it. They could go wherever they wanted as long as the could turn around and wave at me. So about every 15 to 20 minutes, we would exchange far away glimpses of arms hailing us down. It was wonderful to give them some much needed freedom within arms reach.
Another day we hiked the children's cave trail, a supposedly easy .2 mile hike. It was definitely fun, and beautiful, but easy would not be in my description.
The three older girls also received their Arizona Junior Rangers Badge after completing a very interesting booklet. One of the facts they learned was Picacho in Spanish means peak, so the parks name in translated to Peak Peak.
We only stayed 5 nights, which left lots to do on a second trip, and I would definitely add this to a must see list.
