Javelina Chase

April 14, 2018

The Javelina Chase is an annual event that draws competitive and non-competitive cyclists to the small southeastern Arizona town of Duncan, AZ (population 800). Dennis and I were thrilled to be invited to film and photograph this year's races! The first of the videos is up, with a redesigned website coming soon!

The Javelina Chase includes not only the Ghost Mine Rumble, but also a bi-state road race and time trials as well as a criterium hosted across the border in Lordsburg, New Mexico. Here's our freshly-minted video of the road races. Thanks to Mimbres Film LLC for the Criterium photos.

Boquillas Ranch

I keep thinking we've seen all there is to see along the San Pedro River, but then I stumble on the history of Boquillas Ranch, and I begin to see how all the pieces fit together — the early exploration by the Spanish, massive land grants after Mexican independence in 1821, the Apache wars beginning in the 1840s through the 1870s, the peace treaty signed at Council Rocks in 1872 and the discovery of gold near Tombstone in 1871, followed by a flood of Anglo-American settlers into southern Arizona.

Double R Canyon

March 16-18, 2018

On every trip to Jackson Cabin, I have looked longingly at those cinnamon-swirl hills north of Muleshoe Ranch and sworn we'd return to explore them. Finally, the planets aligned, we had a free weekend and the weather was perfect.
