Tire Swing in Lochiel, Arizona – Along the Mexican Border

This is a small ranching community on the very edge of Southern Arizona that straddles the border and the fenceline that separates Mexico and the US which can be seen to the South. I traversed this beautiful country for about 75 miles along Forest Route 61 and was advised by park rangers at Coronado National Monument not to travel solo because of drug traffickers and smugglers. When I spotted armed white ranchers patrolling the border, they were much more intimidating than just about anybody… The road ended in Nogales.
